Thermal analysis and
thermal tests

Discover some of our methods.

ASO Magnifier

Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and differential thermal analysis (DTA)

The DTA and the DSC are used to measure the amount of heat given off or absorbed by a material as a function of temperature.

application areas

  • Determination of glass transition temperatures

  • Enthalpies of fusion

  • Degree of crystallization

  • Heat capacity

  • Decomposition point

ASO Magnifier


In TGA, the change in mass of a substance or a mixture of substances is measured as a function of temperature and time.

application areas

  • Determination of the weight change of a material when the temperature increases due to evaporation, decomposition, reduction or oxidation

  • Determination of material proportions in mixtures

ASO Magnifier

Heat resistance and softening temperature according to Vicat

The heat resistance and softening temperature are a measure of the thermal resilience of plastics. The temperature at a given edge fiber extension or at a defined softening of the material is measured.

application areas

  • The measured values provide information on the practical long-term use limit of thermoplastics
