The versatility of the DMA 242 C is particularly clear from the variety of sample holders. Depending on the type and consistency of your sample, you can investigate the visco-elastic properties accurately over a wide modulus range. In addition to the common types of deformation, i.e. 3-point bending, single and dual cantilever bending, compression/penetration, shearing and tension, we also have a series of special sample holders available: e.g. for extremely stiff composite materials and metals or for combination with a dielectric analyzer (DEA) for curing studies. A stainless steel container facilitates measurements in various media (immersion tests).
