TA Instruments DMA Q800 Dynamic Mechanical Thermal Analysis (DMTA)

Bard Hall B56

Provides time, temperature (temperature control is currently unavailable) and frequency domain mechanical analysis of materials as well as static mechanical testing such as tensile and compressive analysis. It can also be used for transient testing such as creep and stress relaxation.  Available geometries include: tension, shear, compression, 3 point bending, and dual cantilever.  The DMA is very similar to the DHR3 Rheometer but for stiffer materials.


  •  Force loading: 0.001 to 18 N
  • Deformation resolution: 1 nm
  • Frequency range: 0.01 to 50 Hz
  • Temperature range: -120 to 400°C (Temperature control is currently unavailable)
  • Test atmosphere: air or nitrogen
