Non-destructive hot modulus: DMA analysis up to high temperatures

For ceramics, metals, alloys, glasses, composites and more

The DMA GABO EPLEXOR® HT line is the only instrument series on the market which is able to carry out DMA measurements with a maximum dynamic force of 500 N to 1500°C.

Two high-temperature furnaces are available: RT to 1000°C and RT to 1500°C. With a standard furnace (-160°C to 500°C) simultaneously mounted, it is possible to perform consecutive test runs in both the low- and high-temperature range. EPLEXOR® HT instruments can thus cover the entire temperature span from -160°C to 1500°C.

The electronics within the system automatically identify which furnace is currently in use.

The following DMA GABO EPLEXOR® HT are available:

Instrument Type Max. Static Force Max. Dynamic Force *)
DMA GABO EPLEXOR® 25N HT 1500 N ± 25 N
DMA GABO EPLEXOR® 100N HT 1500 N ± 100 N
DMA GABO EPLEXOR® 150N HT 1500 N ± 150 N
DMA GABO EPLEXOR® 500N HT 1500 N ± 500 N
