Physical Testing Lab and Problem Solving Services

Analytical Testing LaboratoryAvomeen offers routine and custom physical testing of thermal and mechanical properties. We use a wide range of analytical techniques to test polymers, adhesives, coatings, sealants, and more.

Some of our physical testing capabilities include:

Thermal Properties

  • Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)
    • DSC analysis measures the heat required to raise the temperature of a given sample, allowing for determinations of chemical characteristics based on relative heat capacity. DSC curves can provide insight into transition temperatures and enthalpies.
  • Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA)
    • TGA analysis involves raising the temperature of the sample gradually and plotting the weight against temperature, resulting in a precise weight loss curve. This method is essential to Avomeen’s Deformulation and Chemical Characterization testing, especially for polymer-based samples.
  • Temperature-dependent degradation
  • Vapor Pressure
  • Heat Capacity

Mechanical Properties

  • Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM)
  • Energy-Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy (EDS)
  • Optical/Polarizing Microscopes + High Resolution Digital Photography
  • Thermal Mechanical Analysis (TMA)
  • Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA)
