Nanoindentation
Nanoindentation (Nano-indent)
In Material Property Analysis
Base Price: $300 per Sample

Nanoindentation is a quasi-static mode of nanomechanical analysis used to measure hardness and reduced elastic modulus of solid samples. Hardness is determined by calculating the ratio of the maximum force to the area of the tip. Modulus is determined by fitting the unload-curve to a linear slope.

Nanomechanical Scratch Test
Nanomechanical Scratch Test (Nano-scratch)
In Material Property Analysis
Base Price: $450 per Sample

Nanomechanical scratch testing (nano-scratch) is an alternate nanomechanical testing mode to nano-indent or nano-wear box testing, which is used to measure force response and mechanical properties typically of thin films and coatings. In addition to standard penetration depth and indent characteristics, the nano-scratch test also calibrates and measures the amount of force required to keep the tip moving laterally across the sample surface.

Zeta Potential
Zeta Potential
In Material Property Analysis
Base Price: $300 per Sample

Zeta potential measures the strength of net charge on particle and solid surfaces. The higher the magnitude of this potential, the stronger the surface interactions (repulsion and/or attraction) will be when the sample contacts other charged materials.

Rheometry
Rheometry
In Material Property Analysis
Base Price: $350 per Hour

Rheometry measures the flow and deformation of materials in response to applied stress and strain to evaluate their viscoelastic properties. It is used to evaluate the mechanical behavior of samples with both liquid- and solid-like characteristics.

Thermogravimetric Analysis
Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA)
In Material Property Analysis
Base Price: $300 per Sample

Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) is used to characterize sample volatility, as well as thermal stability and response. TGA instruments plot weight as a function of temperature and/or time, and analyzing these plots reveals several thermal properties of the material, including (but not limited to): thermal stability, heat resistance, volatility, and vaporization temperatures.

Dynamical Mechanical Analysis
Dynamical Mechanical Analysis (DMA)
In Material Property Analysis
please contact us for pricing

Dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) is used to study changes in the mechanical properties of a material under periodic stress as the temperature is varied. DMA results are used to assess: glass transitions, melting points, elastic modulus, strain-to-break, toughness, creep, and numerous other thermal and mechanical properties.

Thermomechanical Analysis
Thermomechanical Analysis (TMA)
In Material Property Analysis
please contact us for pricing

Thermomechanical analysis (TMA) probes the response of the sample’s thermal, dynamic, and static-mechanical properties as temperature is changed over time. During a TMA measurement, a probe is set at rest on the surface of a sample, with no applied force. Then, heat is applied, causing temperature to rise, and inducing material property changes that deform the specimen. Hyper-fine measurements are taken of the probe’s vertical displacement, illuminating the sample’s morphological and mechanical response to temperature flux. During heating, one can also apply a controlled force across the probe (either dynamic/variable or unchanging/static), enabling different measurement modes that assess a wide assortment of mechanical properties as a function of temperature.
