METTLER TOLEDO will offer a comprehensive e-training course that includes a live session to help interested parties learn how to interpret curves created by thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). Real-time interaction with METTLER TOLEDO experts will enhance understanding of this important thermal analysis tool.
METTLER TOLEDO is pleased to offer a new comprehensive e-training course: TGA Curve Interpretation. The live segment will be offered three times on June 28th, 2017, to allow participation from around the globe. The course includes self-paced learning that can be completed at any time. Both the live session and self-paced modules are included in a one-time course fee of $100.
TGA is used to characterize physical and chemical material properties as a function of temperature in a precisely controlled atmosphere. The method provides valuable information for quality control, development, and research. Application areas include thermoplastics, elastomers, thermosets, metals, and ceramics, as well as analyses in the chemical, building, food, and pharmaceutical industries.
However, the evaluation of measurements is often the most difficult part of an analysis. The e-Learning tool and follow-up webinar will discuss crucial issues related to interpreting TGA curves, including how to handle overlapping mass changes and identify evolved gases. Participants will also learn valuable tips on obtaining additional information using complementary techniques such as MS, FTIR, and GC/MS.
The $100 fee must be made by credit card and includes both the live event and self-paced modules. The live event will include a Q&A with METTLER TOLEDO experts so attendees can get answers to important application questions.
