Thermal Analysis is important to a wide variety of industries, including polymer, composites, pharmaceuticals, foods, petroleum, inorganic and organic chemicals. These instruments typically measure heat flow, weight lost, dimension change as a function of temperature. Properties characterized include melting, crystallization, glass transition, cross-linking, oxidation, decomposition, volatilization, coefficient of thermal expansion. and modulus. These experiments allow the user to examine end-use performance, composition, processing,stability, and molecular structure and mobility.
