Thermal analyses

These are for determining and tracking the behavior of a ceramic material according to temperature, through the evolution of its mass, temperature or dimensions.


They allow for :

  • the control of a material’s heat treatment parameters (debinding, sintering)
  • the identification of phase transformations, state changes, fusions and crystallization…

They are run by :

  • a thermobalance fitted with TG, ATG/DTA et TG/DSC probes, respectively for thermogravimetricanalysis (TG), differential thermal analysis (DTA) and differential scanning calorimetry analysis (DSC),
  • a horizontal differential dilatometer, for dilatometric analysis by way of a reference material
  • a vertical absolute dilatometer, for a precise dilatometric analysis under any type of thermomecanicatmosphere TMA.
