DSC (Differential Scanning Calorimetry) analysis.
Crucial test data for materials such as plastics, laminates and biological samples is undertaken to examine various key effects.
Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is provided by Intertek experts: our instruments are equipped for rapid assessment of large sample batches. DSC measures Specific Heat Capacity, Heat of Transition, and the Temperature of Phase Changes and Melting Points.
DSC also measures the rate of heat flow, and compares differences between the heat flow rate of the test sample and known reference materials. The difference determines variations in material composition, crystallinity and oxidation.
Differential scanning calorimetry thermal analysis provides test data for a wide range of materials. Materials analyzed by DSC include polymers, plastics, composites, laminates, adhesives, food, coatings, pharmaceuticals, organic materials, rubber, petroleum, chemicals, explosives, biological samples and more.

Calorimeters operate over a temperature range of -60C to 500C.
Intertek laboratory scientists offer substantial expertise in the field of thermal analysis. Determination of endotherms, exotherms and weight loss on heating or cooling are performed.
