The NETZSCH product portfolio includes a wide range of instruments that can determine properties of materials at given temperatures and heating rates.
But for some materials and areas of application, this does not paint the full picture. Thus, it is necessary to be able to predict material properties at any temperature and heating rate.
The Kinetics Neo software by NETZSCH allows for these advanced analytics.

In the video below, Dr. Elena Moukhina explains two key features of the software and provides real use cases.
Predictions for Different Climatic Profiles
With this feature, the Kinetics Neo software can predict the Decomposition reactionA decomposition reaction is a thermally induced reaction of a chemical compound forming solid and/or gaseous products. decomposition behavior of materials under different climatic conditions.
For instance, it is possible to determine the lifetime of coating in a hot or cold climate, or how paint will last until it degrades.
From an ecological point of view, it is interesting to analyze how different plastic materials degrade in different climates and under various weather conditions.
Simulation of TD24
The most dangerous industrial accidents in the chemical industry are ExothermicA sample transition or a reaction is exothermic if heat is generated.exothermal reactions that go out of control (runaway reactions). One common criterion for the estimation of thermal risks and hazards is called Temperature for AdiabaticAdiabatic describes a system or measurement mode without any heat exchange with the surroundings. This mode can be realized using a calorimeter device according to the method of accelerating rate calorimetry (ARC). The main purpose of such a device is to study scenarios and thermal runaway reactions. A short description of the adiabatic mode is “no heat in – no heat out”.Adiabatic Conditions 24 Hours (also known as TD24 TMRad, TMR24), which is the temperature at which the time to maximum reaction rate is 24 hours.
The analysis ensures the thermal safety of chemical processes and determines the thermal stability of high-energetic materials.
