Thermal Analysis

Thermal analysis involves studying the properties of materials as they change with temperature. Two methods of thermal analysis include: Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), which measures heat difference and Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) which measures mass.

Differential Scanning Calorimeters measures temperatures and heat flows associated with thermal transitions in a material. Common usage includes investigation, selection, comparison and end-use performance evaluation of materials in research, quality control and production applications. The properties measured by DSC techniques include glass transitions, “cold” crystallization, phase changes, melting, crystallization, product stability, cure/ cure kinetics and oxidative stability.

Thermogravimetric Analysis measures weight changes in a material as a function of temperature (or time) under a controlled atmosphere. Its principal uses include measurement of a material’s thermal stability and composition. Instruments that use TGA are routinely employed in all phases of research, quality control and production operations.
