C-Therm Appoints Brazilian Distributor in Supporting Local Thermal Conductivity Market

April, 2010Rio de Janerio, BRAZIL – C-Therm Technologies announced it has appointed Dairix Equipamentos Analíticos Ltda. as its exclusive distributor in Brazil for the C-Therm TCi Thermal Conductivity Analyzer.

Adam Harris, Managing Director for C-Therm Technologies Ltd., announced the partnership on a recent visit to Rio de Janeiro as part of an Atlantic Canadian ACOA trade mission to Brazil. Harris commented, “We are thrilled to be working with Dairix – they are a group we are very comfortable with in terms of representing our TCi instrument – they are highly respected in their field, have an impressive presence within the market and can provide our Brazilian clients with direct in-country technical support for the product pre and post-sale.”

The C-Therm TCi Thermal Conductivity Analyzer is a lab instrument that’s used to measure the thermal transport properties of liquids, powders, pastes and solids. Applications for the technology are varied as the sensors can test a broad range of materials including metal hydrides (fuel cell), plastics, nanomaterials, explosives, asphalts, petrochemicals, ceramics, paints, battery cathode materials and nuclear fuel. The TCi helps researchers in offering a faster, easier, and more versatile means to characterize their materials. The technology behind the TCi represents such a significant breakthrough in thermal analysis it won the top award for innovation in Canada, the Manning Innovation Award.

The product has an impressive global client list including Dupont (Japan), Procter & Gamble (USA), the US Navy Surface Warfare Division (USA), the Atomic Weapons Establishment (UK), Canadian Explosives Research Lab (Canada), CEA (France), and recently IPT – Institute for Technical Research (Brazil).

“It’s clear C-Therm is the leader in the field of thermal conductivity analysis and the TCi instrument complements our existing Setaram high-temperature calorimetry equipment and Rigaku X-ray spectroscopy product lines perfectly,” said Mitsuoki Oshima, President and Owner of Dairix.
