Many of you have long known TA Instruments for expertise in DSC, TGA and DMA thermal equipment, as well as the popular ARES and DHR rheometers. In 2013, TA Instruments made a bold statement about its commitment to the rubber and elastomer industry with the acquisition of Scarabaeus GmbH (a supplier of high quality RPA, MDR, Mooney, hardness and density equipment and software). Additionally, last year, TA announced the acquisition of certain assets related to the ElectroForce® Systems Group, from the Bose Corporation. The ElectroForce group manufactures dynamic mechanical testing systems used to characterize a wide variety of engineered materials, including plastics, polymers and elastomers.

In 2016, TA Instruments launched a brand new Thermal analysis line that includes the Discovery DSC and Discovery TGA. Incorporating many patented TA technologies, these products once again set new standards in performance, reliability, and ease of use. Backed by TA’s global service organization and in house application expertise, TA has solidified its position as the leader in the Thermal Analysis product space.

Additionally, In 2016 TA announced the acquisition of Rubotherm GmbH. The patented magnetic balance technology of Rubotherm extends TA’s capability in TGA to now include high pressure and high temperature applications in challenging environments.

TA Instruments – a subsidiary of Waters Corporation (NYSE: WAT) – is the leading manufacturer of analytical instruments for thermal analysis, rheology and microcalorimetry. The company is headquartered in New Castle, Delaware, USA, and has direct operations in 24 countries.
