HTDS offers a comprehensive array of simple to use instruments, to quickly and reliably determine thermal data. Using optical and calorimetric methods, the instruments measure materials’ physical properties and phase changes. Further, two microscope hot stages allow for the observation of a sample during the heating and cooling periods. The innovative METTLER TOLEDO dropping point systems determine dropping and softening points of pitch, asphalt, polymers, resins, waxes and many more materials with full automatic operation. Standard compliant cups and measurement methods guarantee comparable results.
