Innovatech Labs, a leading analytical laboratory specializing in materials analysis & testing, has prepared this tutorial for our customers. The following information about Thermal Gravimetric Analysis (TGA), is intended to help you better understand the services we provide, what types of samples are best suited for this technique and the types of data that can be obtained.
Thermal Gravimetric Analysis (TGA) is a thermal analysis procedure that measures weight loss as a function of temperature in a controlled environment. The temperature points at which active components volatilize are plotted, creating a graph that quantifies the composition.
This type of analysis can be useful in determining differences in polymers, especially in the amounts of inorganic filler used within the polymer.
Since every project is unique, we invite you to contact one of our highly skilled analysts to discuss your specific needs.
