To perform DSC testing, a small amount of material is heated at a predetermined rate.
ASTM D3418 – MELTING POINT BY DSC TESTING SERVICES
Inspection Validating the specifications, value and safety of your raw materials, products and assets. Differential Scanning Calorimetry, commonly known as DSC, is a thermo-analytical technique for polymeric and non-metallic materials.
It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. This may indicate a chemical reaction such as curing is taking place. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

Our deliverable is certainty – high quality data, test reports and certifications that you can rely d34118 when making decisions about your materials and components. Phenolic materials typically give off water as a by product of curing which boils and shows a downward endothermic peak in the same range as the curing exothermic peak so they cancel each other out.
Differential Scanning Calorimetry Analysis – DSC – ASTM D, ASTM D | Element
E Terminology Relating to Thermophysical Properties. True heats of fusion are to be determined in conjunction with structure investigation, and frequently, specialized crystallization techniques are needed. Melting or boiling points look like a downward endothermic peak since they absorb energy, glass transitions look like a stair step, and most curing reactions show an asmt exothermic peak.
Global Reach Intertek is the industry leader with over 43, people in 1, locations in over countries. E Terminology Relating to Thermophysical Properties. The reference compartment contains an empty aluminum pan and cover equivalent to those used to encapsulate a test sample.
Differential Scanning Calorimeter ASTM D, ASTM E, ISO
The resulting thermal scan is then analyzed. Testing Evaluating how your products and services meet and exceed quality, safety, sustainability and performance standards. Using a DSC differential scanning calorimeter the following are commonly determined: It is also used to characterize materials for their thermal performance.
Certain equipment allows the temperature range to be extended. Advanced Plastic and Material Testing, Inc. Weak glass transitions such as in polyethylene and polypropylene are usually not strong enough to detect. Note 1—True heats of fusion are to be determined in conjunction with structure investigation, and frequently, specialized crystallization techniques are needed. The ISO procedures provide additional information not supplied by this test method.

Assurance Asmt Inspection Certification. This article examines the key differences between both methodologies.
Validating the specifications, value and safety of your raw materials, products and assets. The signal from the DSC is usually plotted with temperature on the X-axis and heat energy on the Y-axis.
The sample is heated at a controlled rate and a plot of heat flow versus temperature is produced.
