Overview

In Episode Three of our Practical Approach Webinar Series, the user will learn about approaching test method development for some common DSC applications:

  1. Understanding the thermal stability of the materials to be tested – Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA)
  2. An example for approaching test method development
    • ASTM method for determination of a Tg of a polymer
    • ASTM method for determination of the melt/crystallization of a polymer
    • ASTM method for determination of cure reactions of thermosets
    • ASTM method for determination of oxidative stability
