Combined with an FTIR analysis, a DSC thermal scan can be used to help further identify certain types of materials by their melting points and is a useful aatm for checking plastic parts or resins for contamination not seen by FTIR.

Differential Scanning Calorimeter ASTM D, ASTM E, ISO

Certain equipment allows the temperature range d341 be extended. Both pans are heated at the same temperature ramp rate and the energy required to keep each one heating is continuously measured. Standards can be obtained from appropriate standards authorities. Subscription pricing is determined by: The asmt compartment contains an empty aluminum pan and cover asfm to those used to encapsulate a test sample.

Certain equipment allows the temperature range to be extended. Change in specific heat capacity, heat flow and temperature values are determined for these transitions. DSC testing has been used for decades as a way to predict the behaviors of polymeric materials under different thermal conditions.


Our polymer testing experts have years of experience across a variety of industries, and can help you overcome the unique challenges inherent with non-metallic adtm. One of the pans is filled with sample and the other is kept empty as a control. Differential Scanning Calorimetry, commonly known as DSC, is a thermo-analytical technique for polymeric and non-metallic materials. This standard is not included in any packages.

This test method does not apply to all types of polymers as written see 6. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Note 3—This astj is similar but not equivalent to ISO-2, Send us a request Need help or have a d318 Using a DSC differential scanning calorimeter the following are commonly determined: Differential scanning calorimetry is used to assist in astj specific polymers, polymer alloys, and certain polymer additives, which exhibit thermal transitions.

If the sample under test requires more energy compared to the reference, it is indicated as an endotherm. By using our website you consent to all cookies in accordance with our Cookie Policy. When less energy is required to heat the sample as compared to the inert reference, an exothermic peak is observed. 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.

By making accurate measurements of heat capacity and temperature, differential scanning calorimetry can detect changes in material properties at exact temperatures, revealing important transition ranges and deterioration points.


True heats of fusion are to be determined in conjunction with structure investigation, and frequently, specialized crystallization techniques are needed. Standards Subsctiption may be the perfect solution.

The sample is heated at a controlled rate and a plot of heat flow versus temperature is produced. This may indicate a chemical reaction such as curing is taking place.

Certain equipment allows the temperature range to be extended. Note 1—True heats of fusion are to be determined in conjunction with structure investigation, and frequently, specialized crystallization techniques are needed. Measures sstm temperature and energy of thermal transitions such as melting point, glass transition, and curing reactions.

This standard is also available to be included in Standards Subscriptions. The sample compartment is where an encapsulated sample of about 10 to asmt milligrams is placed for testing. Weak glass transitions such as in polyethylene and polypropylene are usually not strong enough to detect. Due to copyright restrictions, we are not able to provide copies of standards.
