Title: Enhance Your Understanding of Composite Materials with Thermal Analysis
Presented by: Hitachi High-Tech Analytical Science
Date and Time: June 29, 2022 10:00 am
Speaker: Olivier Savard, Thermal Analysis Manager, EMEA at Hitachi High Tech
Due to their exceptional properties and flexibilities, composite materials are becoming more widely used in a variety of applications. They play critical roles in increasing strength and reducing weight in the automotive and aerospace industries as well as improving commodities used in our daily lives.
In this webinar, attendees will learn about:
- Thermal analysis techniques such as differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA), and thermomechanical analysis (TMA)
- How these techniques will ensure composite materials meet specifications and perform as expected for the intended application
- How thermal analysis can be used to characterize composites
- Case studies of each technique and real-life examples
Olivier Savard joined Hitachi High-Tech Analytical Science Ltd. in September 2019 as the thermal analysis sales manager for EMEA. He has since taken ownership of the global thermal analysis product manager. Before joining Hitachi, Olivier worked as a material characterization application specialist for PerkinElmer U.K. and Canada. He obtained his chemistry B.Sc. from Université Laval (Québec City, Québec) and his M.Sc. working on proton exchange membrane fuel cells at Simon Fraser University (Burnaby, British Columbia).
