Thermal Analysis (DSC, TGA)

Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) measures the rate and degree of heat change as a function of time or temperature.

Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) monitors the change in mass of a substance as a function of temperature or time as the sample is subjected to a controlled temperature program.

Thermal Properties Which Can Be Measured:

  • Temperatures and heat of fusion, vaporization and crystallization
  • Heat of reaction, including polymerization, oxidation and combustion
  • Temperature and heat of decomposition (e.g. dehydration)
  • Heat of solution, adsorption or desorption
  • Specific heat, Activation energy, Polymer Crystallinity, Curing time
  • Material purity, Thermal and Oxidative stability
  • Reactivity and Reaction rates
  • Temperature and Glass Transition, Softening, Linear Coefficient of Expansion
