Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) is a technique that quantifies the volatile content lost by a pure polymer or compound as its temperature increases, presenting it gravimetrically and as a percentage. The device used for this analysis is also referred to as a TGA.

Besides determining volatile content, TGA is also employed in identifying impurities, moisture, and decomposition temperatures of substances.

With the Shimadzu brand TGA device available in the laboratory, Kabkom Chemistry conducts routine monitoring and verification of volatile content in incoming materials and final products. Additionally, it is utilized for content determination in R&D studies.

The mass losses occurring at different temperature intervals and their respective percentages provide crucial information about the product’s composition.
