Welcome to Gearing Scientific Ltd - testing new materials for over 25 Years.
1. Thermal Conductivity test apparatus and contract testing
Supply of Lasercomp apparatus in the UK for testing of materials from -160C to over 250C with heat flow meters or guarded hot plate apparatus. Rapid contract testing on our own apparatus here from 0 to 150C (or 250C max -according to the material).
2. DMA testing and application notes
We offer contract testing on Dynamic Mechanical (Thermal) Analysis - DMA or DMTA which often shows much more subtle differences than other techniques such as DSC or even mDSC! In particular the glass transitions (Tg) for even minor components in a blend or composite material or foodstuffs, and can even look at a few milligrammes of a valuable pharmaceutical or research material using the patented material pockets on probably the most sensitive DMA available on the market. We also sell these material pockets for any DMA and have a few spares left for the old PL DMTAs which went out of production over 15 years ago.
3. Surface testing with CSM Instruments and Pearson Panke Ltd - UK and EIRE ONLY
nano- and micro-hardness and -scratch testing of very thin coatings or bulk materials with very small thermal drift and the lowest compliance of any such apparatus available anywhere. Tribological wear testing both pin on disc or to and fro up to 1000C. Supply of new apparatus in the UK and Eire and contract testing on the latest apparatus in their labs in Switzerland. (Max testing Temperature there is 800C for tribology at the moment.)
www.csm-instruments.com has a full range of application notes.
4. Polymer standards and co-polymers
Polymer standards and co-polymers for research or calibration of GPC or SEC etc apparatus with academic discounts to Universities in Europe. We can supply from www.polymersource.com and www.ampolymer.com as well as from others. A full list can be downloaded here
5. Gel timers
Gel timers supplied in the UK and Eire from Gel Instrumente with Pearson Panke Ltd. Please see www.gelinstrumente.ch for more information.
