Differential Scanning Calorimetry is one of the most frequently used techniques in the field of thermal characterization of solids and liquids. In this technique the difference in energy input into a substance and a reference material is measured as a function of temperature, while the substance and reference material are subjected to a controlled temperature program. Rapid analyses, easy handling and high significance for research, development and quality control are some of the advantages of this analytical technique
DSC method can be used for the analysis of energetic effects such as:
  • Melting / crystallization behaviour
  • Solid-solid transitions
  • Polymorphism
  • Degree of crystallinity
  • Glass transitions
  • Cross linking reactions
  • Oxidative stability
  • Specific heat (At present specific heat capacity measurements are not possible.)
  • Temperature range: - 400 C to 500 0C.
  • Sample required is about 10-30 mg.
  • Samples should be non-explosive and non-corrosive.
Sample required

10-30 mg Sample is required for analysis.
