The Center for Applied Analytics ZAA and the Center for Plant and Equipment Development (certified according to ISO 9001:2008) are specialized in the development of scientific research plants and their analyses, which are used both for the characterization of new materials and for quality control in the production process.
Knowledge of the thermal behaviour of materials is important not only for components that are obviously used at higher temperatures, but also for everyday applications. Temperatures of up to 120 °C can be caused by solar radiation alone. In contrast, temperatures down to -40 °C are possible in winter. In both cases, composite materials and material combinations are particularly critical, as different thermal properties can lead to different damage phenomena.
