TA Instruments Q2000 Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC)

 
Device operating temperature range: -90 ° C - 550 ° C
Cooling module (intracooler) RCS (no use of liquid nitrogen)
 
Measurement carried out by the differential scanning calorimetry method consists in determining the amount of heat transferred to or taken from the tested sample, per unit of time, necessary to maintain the same temperature of the sample and a neutral thermal reference (empty crucible) during their heating or cooling at a constant speed. The proportionality of the measurement signal to the heat flux in the DSC enables the direct measurement of the heat capacity and the determination of the cp (T) relationship, and thus the quantitative “observation” of the course of changes in the sample material on the basis of the shape of the DSC curve. The value of the heat flux (dH / dt) depends first of all on the type of transformation or thermal reaction taking place in the sample, and also on the instrumental factors of the measurement.

The test sample is heated at a constant rate according to a controlled temperature program, and the change in mass as a function of temperature is measured, and the gases generated during the thermogravimetric analysis are analyzed simultaneously. Alternatively, the sample is held at a specific, constant temperature and the change in weight over time is measured over a specified period of time while analyzing evolved gaseous products. The stage ending the measurement is the interpretation of the IR spectrum, from which information is obtained about the functional groups and types of bonds that were in the tested portion of the gas released from the degraded material at a given temperature or time interval.

Instron Hammer - CEAST 9050

 
Impact strength is a measure of the brittleness of materials determined by the work required to dynamically break the specimen and related to the size of the specimen cross-section.
 

Charpy's method

This method consists in impact bending a cuboidal specimen with or without a notch, supported on two supports, and determining the work required to break it. The purpose of a notch is to concentrate the stresses in a specific place of the test sample. The impact toughness is defined as the work required to dynamically break the specimen, related to 1 m2 of the specimen cross-section (if it is notched impact strength, then to the notched section).
 

The Izod method

The Izod method differs from the Charpy method in terms of specimen mounting, specimen dimensions, and hammer pendulum impact speed. Only notched samples are tested with this method. The sample is mounted vertically with one end in the hammer base holder and broken with the cylindrical blade of the hammer pendulum at a specified distance from the edge of the holder.
