Compositional & Thermal Testing for the Defense Industry
Whether you are trying to understand the bulk composition of a polymer, metal or ceramic material or trying to evaluate heat flow through a material, Lucideon has the capabilities and experience to provide answers.
Our full suite of chemical and thermal testing capabilities allows characterization across all material systems and at temperatures ranging from -150°C up to 1500°C.
Our experts can determine the thermal and thermomechanical properties of a wide variety of materials to characterize composition, verify material properties, assess fitness for applications, troubleshoot production issues, qualify processing changes, identify the differences between materials and perform failure analysis. These thermal testing capabilities include:
- Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)
- Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE)
- Differential Thermal Analysis (DTA)
- Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA)
- Thermal Diffusivity
- Thermal Conductivity
- Specific Heat.
Our experts are backed by a full in-house suite of capabilities to support quantitative chemical analysis. From evaluating bulk chemistries and reverse engineering to trace contamination identification, we have the knowledge and resources to support your needs. These chemical testing capabilities include:
