DMA Interpretation Made Easy for Plastics & Rubber Developments

27 Days left to register

Tuesday Jun 18, 2019

Boost your plastics development & optimization (thermoplastics, thermosets, rubber, polymer blends…) by extracting the most out of your DMA graphs.

Mark DeMeuse will help you upgrade your DMA interpretation skills & explain how to control product performance (stiffness, HDT, creep behavior, physical aging…) using DMA data to speed up your analysis, extrapolate results & meet application requirements faster.

Why should you attend?

Apart from QC, DMA graphs provide additional data (material interactions, product performance…) that can support your efforts to boost your plastics developments & optimization (thermoplastics, thermosets, polymer blends…). Join this course that is designed to deliver applied knowledge for plastics and learn how to:


  1. Upgrade your interpretation skills by understanding how to extrapolate results (creep behavior, physical aging, gel time…) obtained on key samples 

  2. Detect raw material interactions (plasticizers, filler concentrations, impurities...) by understanding how it shows in DMA fingerprints

  3. Meet application requirements faster by learning how to relate DMA data to product performance (Tg <> HDT, storage modulus <> stiffness, secondary transitions <> hardness…)

A very Good Course! Provided a good corelation of HDT and other properties with overall material performance.

Thibaud P. , from Rescoll

I learnt how to effectively use DMA to understand polymer formulations.

Hong X. , from Cardolite Corporation

Helped me understand some DMA plots that we generated internally. Provided good information on E' Tan delta versus Tg, HDT, etc.

Robert B. , from Americhem Inc.

An Excellent Course! The background info and the case studies used were very helpful.

Brian G. , from Voith

We just purchased a DMA and the course was a good introduction to the technique. There was some very good information about specific applications that relate to our business.
