DEA - Dielectric Analysis for in-situ thermoset cure monitoring
Available from Netzsch Instruments North America, LLC
For investigation of the curing behavior of thermosetting resin systems, composite materials, adhesives and paints, Dielectric Analysis (DEA) in accordance with ASTM E 2038 or E 2039 has stood the test of time. The great advantage of DEA is that it can be employed not only on a laboratory scale, but also in process.
For measurement of the ion conductivity, which is calculated from the dielectric loss factor, or its reciprocal value, the ion viscosity, NETZSCH offers single- and multiple-channel DEA systems, depending on the application, which operate in various measurement and frequency ranges with different types of sensors.
