DMA 1 Star Systems – Mettler Toledo – allows Dynamic mechanical analysis to measure the mechanical and viscoelastic properties of materials as a function of temperature, time and frequency. Measurements can be carried out in all standard deformation modes, even in liquids or at defined relative humidity levels. It is coupled to a liquid nitrogen generator for a free-standing production of liquid nitrogen and low-temperature operations.

Technical description
Features and benefits of the METTLER TOLEDO DMA 1 include: Flexible positioning of the Measuring Head – measurements in all deformation modes, even in liquids or at different relative humidity levels; Easy operation – allowing fast change of deformation modes; TMA measurements – for measuring expansion coefficients, effects due to creep, and relaxation times; Humidity option – for sorption and desorption measurements; Ergonomic design with large touchscreen – for convenient sample loading and monitoring of the measurement process; Wide temperature range – from –190 to 600 °C; Extremely efficient and economical cooling – saves valuable measurement time and reduces liquid nitrogen consumption. A unique aspect of the DMA 1 is its rotatable Measuring Head. Measurements can be carried out in all standard deformation modes, even in liquids or at defined relative humidity levels.
