Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) measures weight changes in a material as a function of temperature or time under a controlled atmosphere. Its principal uses include measurement of a material's thermal stability and composition. Thermogravimetric Analysis instruments are routinely used in all phases of research, quality control, and production operations. A variety of analytical techniques including derivative thermogravimetric analysis and isothermal analysis can be employed with advanced software options.
