SKZ expands material analysis equipment

The SKZ Plastics Center has recently commissioned the Chip-DSC100 calorimeter from Linseis Messgeräte GmbH, which enables precise evaluation of thermal material properties under process-related processing conditions. Areas of application include injection molding, serial welding processes, bonding, and experiments on the crystallization behavior of plastics.

Chip-based calorimeter enables faster heating and cooling rates and measurements on corrosive materials

Due to its low thermal mass, the chip technology allows heating and cooling rates of several 100 K/min. This feature allows measurements close to the conditions of real manufacturing processes. Christian Eck, project manager at SKZ, is excited about the capabilities of the new calorimeter: "The fast heating and cooling rates in particular give us new opportunities in our research and development projects to investigate the thermal behavior of plastics closer to the real process."

High energy efficiency
The use of a ceramic sensor also expands the range of applications by enabling measurements on corrosive materials such as fluorinated plastics or when determining the degree of gelation of PVC. In addition to these benefits, the chip calorimeter is highly energy efficient due to its low thermal mass.
