Composites

Whether simple dispersions of a filler in a matrix, carbon fiber tapes or fabrics, or nanocomposites, composite materials represent a large application area for thermal analysis. Fillers in composite material, particularly nanoscale ones, can affect the matrix dramatically.

Composites are often tested for:
  • Stress cracking in packaging
  • UV curing of nail polish
  • Wax content and properties in lipsticks
  • Emulsion behavior
  • Quality control of packaging materials
