High-Speed Differential Scanning Calorimetry

High-Speed Differential Scanning Calorimetry, also known as fast scanning chip calorimetry, has received a great deal of attention in recent years.

Flash DSC – the only commercially available chip colorimeter – enables higher temperature scanning rates for solving a variety of material characterization challenges. High-Speed Differential Scanning Calorimetry allows material scientists to simulate industrial polymer processing conditions and to study metastable materials, facilitating process and material optimization. In addition, ultra-fast scanning rates by Flash DSC can suppress kinetic processes such as cold crystallization, or reorganization, enabling one to study the melting of the material as it was crystallized during cooling.

Discover the potential and benefits of this exiting technology, including real application examples, in our Thermal Analysis Innovation guide.
