Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)
ASTM D7426 & ASTM D3418
Differential scanning calorimetry, or DSC, is a thermoanalytical technique in which the difference in the amount of heat required to increase the temperature of a sample and reference is measured as a function of temperature. This test method is useful for research, quality control, and specification acceptance.
ASTM D7426 This test method covers the assignment of the glass transition temperatures (Tg) of materials using differential scanning calorimetry.
ASTM D3418 This test method covers determination of transition temperatures and enthalpies of fusion and crystallization of polymers by differential scanning calorimetry.
