Material Characterization

Do you know how your material is actually behaving in dynamic environments?  Do you speculate your product’s characteristics are changing when they are used in their intended end-use application?  Are your customers contacting you with product-related issues?


Dragon Materials provides a full range measurements that provide the data you need to better understand your materials.  “Materials characterization” is an umbrella term that includes the following types of measurements:


  • Rheological
  • Surface
  • Thermal
  • Mechanical
  • Composition


Dragon Materials has access to instrumentation used for the characterization of materials ranging from low-viscosity fluids to flexible gels, crosslinked polymers, and solids .  We also have the capability to design custom rheological measurement tools and instrumentation to capture the particular material behavior or characteristic you need.
