Measures the change in heat flow as a function of
temperature. Idea for studying reversible reactions of thermoplastics
such as melting-crystallization points and glass transition temperature.
Also used in the study of the kinetics of thermoset curing reactions,
purity, heat capacities and the effects of additives.
Measures the weight change as a function of time and
temperature. Typical applications include volatile content, stability,
oxidation-reduction reactions, composite analysis such as percent fiberglass,
carbon or filler, and absorption-desorption.
