The new NETZSCH GABO EPLEXOR HT series dynamic mechanical analyzer (DMA) is reportedly designed for the thermomechanical characterization of ceramics, ceramic composites, glass, and metals that often require higher forces than traditional DMA tests.
Within the defense industry, advanced ceramics are at the heart of modern armor systems due to their comparatively low weight and high performance during ballistic-scale impacts. Ceramic materials have been developed as an armor material since World War I, when enameling of steel plates was shown to improve their resistance to incoming bullets.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could go somewhere and network with dozens of industry experts, all in one place and at the same time? What if you could listen to these experts share their expertise, and then ask focused questions in order to get specific information that would help you and your business?
For several decades, the use of glass fiber reinforced thermoplastic (GFRT) composites by the automotive industry has been steadily increasing for standard performance applications.1 The values that GFRTs bring include intrinsically high specific stiffness, low cost, and the ability to produce parts quickly with minimal manufacturing complexity.
