Thermal Analysis of Thermosets Handbooks
Thermosets are heavily cross-linked polymers that must be mechanically strong, chemically insoluble, and thermally stable. Thermal analysis can be employed for the research, quality control and processing of thermosetting materials.
Topics covered in this handbook: These application handbooks provide insight into the thermal analysis of thermosets and present a large number of practical examples. The main techniques used for sample measurement are differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), thermomechanical analysis (TMA) and dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA). In special cases, combined on-line techniques such as SDTA, visual monitoring, and evolved gas analysis have also been employed.
