Thermoset Analysis Using the Discovery X3 DSC
Brought to you by TA Instruments
This paper looks at examples of curing systems through Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) experiments across an array of applications and testing purposes. In all cases, new technology offers the opportunity for improved results in less time.

Curing materials (e.g. thermosets, rubbers) must be thoroughly tested to ensure their quality and reliability. Analysis usually requires DSC instruments to study cure exotherms, glass transitions, and other thermal properties. New DSC technology is drastically improving curing analysis techniques and setting a new standard for accuracy and efficiency. From material development and failure analysis to product quality control, all aspects of cure analysis are evolving. Improved cure testing equates to improved product discovery, safety, and efficacy.

Key Objectives:

  • How cure analysis is conducted through heat-cool-heat experiments
  • What applications require accurate cure analysis
  • How to improve cure analysis accuracy through new testing methods
  • Why optimized cure analysis is important for productivity and success
  • How to use new DSC techniques for improved analysis in your lab
