Thermal characterization with DSC

Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) can be used to determine transition temperatures and enthalpy changes of solid and liquid samples under controlled temperature changes. Typical research topics are transition temperatures (melting, crystallization, glass transition temperature) and their enthalpies, material's amorphic and crystalline behaviour, hardening and specific heat, material compatibility and the effect of additives. The temperature range of the measurement is –170 °C to 600 °C, available atmospheres are N2 and O2. The measurement includes the determination of the aforementioned phase transition temperatures and their enthalpies at a given temperature cycle (determined by the customer) with two parallel measurements. Please disclose the desired temperature program upon ordering: heating rate(s) (K/min), isotherms and temperature ranges (min/max). If you have any doubts about these parameters, we are more than happy to help you.
