DYNAMIC MECHANICAL ANALYSIS (DMA) AND TESTING SERVICES
POLYMER MATERIAL TESTING FOR DYNAMIC PROPERTIES
DMA or Dynamic Mechanical Analysis is a powerful analytical technique for investigating the temperature and frequency-dependent behavior of polymeric materials and components.
Polymers and Non-linear Materials:
For polymers like plastics, rubbers, typical composites, which are viscoelastic and have time dependent mechanical properties Dynamic Mechanical Analysis or DMA is an effective method to characterize the material or a product with respect to time, temperature and frequency measuring its stiffness and energy disspation properties.
AdvanSES can provide the following types of dynamic test data to fully characterize the materials and products;
DYNAMIC MATERIAL TESTING

Polymer materials can be aged in suitable mediums like oils, air, water etc., as per their field service conditions and Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) can be carried out to study the material properties before and after aging.
