A thermite reaction (a type of aluminothermic reaction) is one in which aluminium metal is oxidized by an oxide of another metal, most commonly iron oxide. Although the reactants are stable at room temperature, when they are exposed to sufficient heat to ignite, they burn with an extremely intense exothermic reaction. Thermite contains its own supply of oxygen, and does not require any external source (such as air). Consequently, it cannot be smothered and may ignite in any environment (it will burn perfectly well underwater, for example), given sufficient initial heat.
Such a reaction can be successfully be studied by drop calorimetry and its heat measured.

The densification which occurs during the sintering process allows to obtain chemically, thermally and mechanically stable materials. However, the properties of the materials can be still improved by maintaining a constant and not too fast rate of shrinkage during the sintering (see application sheet AN350).
With a specific software package it is possible to simulate a sintering process at a constant rate of shrinkage, the temperature scanning rate being controlled simultaneously.
During a test with controlled sintering rate, the heating rate is no more constant but decreases if the sintering rate becomes higher than the preset value. The enlargement of the previous temperature curve shows the temperature profile required to obtain a sintering process at a rate which never exceeds the preset value.
Printed circuit (PC) boards are composed of several conducting layers intercalated with epoxy resin prepreg layers. These different layers are pressed together and then heated until reticulation. After reticulation, the thermal expansion coefficient of the PC board is lowered, which prevents metallic wires soldered on it from being broken. In flexure mode, the sample is supported by two parallel edges ; a load is applied on an edge-ended probe which comes to rest in the middle of the sample.
