Gearing Scientific Ltd

Gearing Scientific - Specialists in Thermal/Mechanical Testing and Analysis

  • Thermal Insulation Testing
  • DMA Testing & Application Notes. Over 35 years experience here.

For checking the THERMAL INSULATION properties of your materials, we offer a rapid service to BS874/ISO8301 for measuring the lambda values. Thickness up to 100mm.

DMA (Dynamic Mechanical Analysis) will give you the glass transition (softening point), stiffness (modulus) and damping from -180ºC to 400ºC in air. These can vary with the vibration frequency and strain amplitude! Also thermal expansion - TMA. Runs can be made in air or liquids (max 150C).  DMA is also over 1000 times as sensitive as DSC for milligrams of powders or a single drop of liquid.  Polymer calibration standards for GPC or Maldi-TOFS.  Deuterated polymers and monomers.
