Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA)
This test method provides a thermogravimetric (TGA) technique to determine the amounts of organics (oil, polymer), carbon black and ash (filler) in a rubber compound.
This test method is intended for use in quality control, material screening, and related problem solving where a compositional analysis, or comparison to a known material, is desired.
The amount of plasticizer/oil may be determined separately using Test Method D297.
ACE utilizes research-grade equipment.
