Apps - A Helpful Tool in Thermal Analysis

Mobile apps are small-scale application programs that are optimized for use on smartphones and tablet computers. Applications known as “native apps” are installed directly onto mobile instruments and implemented via corresponding platforms and online shops. This new age of the apps has also reached the world of Thermal Analysis –and so NETZSCH also offers them in addition to our printed literature, videos and webcasts. So far, we have developed and issued two such applications on Thermal Analysis topics – and both are free of charge.

NETZSCH App "Thermal Properties of the Elements"

This App offers all the important parameters of more than 100 elements and even more than that. For each element a short overview is given. In order to extend your knowledge about the diverse elements you already know from the periodic table of elements, the "Thermal Properties of Elements App" allows you to quickly choose among general and thermal properties.

Get a valuable insight into the Thermal Properties of each single element at only one glance, e.g. about:

  • Melting Point
  • Heat of Fusion
  • Expansion Coefficient
  • Thermal Conductivity
  • And much more.

Apart from these parameters, the App informs you which methods and what instruments are most apt to fulfill your specific needs. It further leads you to the respective instrument pages where you can find additional information.

NETZSCH App "Thermal Properties of Polymers"

This App offers all the important characteristics of polymer materials and even more than that.

In order to facilitate your work the “Thermal Properties of Polymers App” allows you to quickly filter amongst the following polymer categories:

  • Commodity
  • Thermoplastics
  • Engineering Thermoplastics
  • High-Temperature Resistant Thermoplastics
  • Thermoplastic Elastomers
  • ElastomersThermosets.

Additionally you can accelerate your search by specifying the values of the measurement parameters of your interest: 

  • Glass Transition Temperature
  • Melting Temperature
  • Melting Enthalpy
  • Decomposition Temperature
  • Young’s Modulus
  • Coefficient of Linear Thermal Expansion
  • Specific Heat
  • Thermal Conductivity
  • Density

Apart from defining these parameters as such, the App informs you which methods and what instruments are most apt to fulfill your specific needs. It further leads you to the respective instrument pages where you can find additional information.

The App is available free of charge on Apple’s App Store or on Google’s Play. There are two versions available. One is optimized for iPad and Tablets, the other one is perfect for smartphones but can be used as well on tablets.
