C-Therm technology has a broad range of unique capabilities that allow it to play an integral role in R&D, production, quality control and other monitoring functions across many industries.

One of the primary benefits of C-Therm technology is its ability to rapidly, non-destructively determine a material’s effusivity - a unique thermal characteristic of all materials related to their ability to transfer heat. Effusivity can be a valuable proxy for other material characteristics, and can be correlated to:

  • Homogeneity
  • Cure
  • Heat damage
  • Delamination
  • Void detection
  • Strength (tensile and modulus)
  • Filler or molecular orientation
  • Tactility or sensory warmth
  • Cell structure in foams
  • Vacuum levels
  • Compression
