Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA)
In TGA, the sample is heated at a controlled rate or kept at a controlled temperature while its mass is weighed with an extremely precise scale.
The analysis may give information about phase transitions, absorption, adsorption, desorption, chemisorption, thermal decomposition, and solid-gas reactions. It may also be used as a characterization and compositional analysis method.
As a result of the measurement, you will get the change in mass as a function of temperature and time. A simultaneous DTGA analysis can also be performed.
The type of heating cycle can be tailored to your sample (temperature ranges from 25 °C to 1100 °C), with various options for the surrounding gas atmosphere (air, O2, and N2).
Please disclose the aim of the measurement and the desired temperature program and atmosphere(s) upon ordering.
