Rheology and thermal analysis
The description of the material properties of plastics is essential for the design of processing procedures and for quality assurance. Rheometric investigations can be used to characterize the flow and deformation behavior of thermoplastic polymers and to better understand their structure-viscosity behavior during processing.
The test methods of thermal analysis open up the possibility of identifying relationships between processing conditions, microstructure and material properties of plastics. In this way, polymers can be identified and processing-related material damage can be detected.
In this seminar, the theoretical fundamentals of rheology and thermal analysis are combined with practical demonstrations of the equipment in the laboratory and pilot plant. Concrete application examples from the practice of the accredited testing laboratory at the KUZ will be used to show what information can be obtained from the recorded measurement curves.
