High-Speed DSC – Obtain Unique Insights into Your Materials


High-speed DSC, which subjects samples to ultra-high cooling and heating rates, is becoming an indispensable tool for the characterization of novel materials in R&D. Explore the novel insights that can be gained—using a Flash DSC—in our "Thermal Analysis Innovation" guide.

High-Speed DSC overcomes certain limits of conventional DSC by achieving ultra-high cooling-rates, typical in real-life production, and ultra-high heating rates—allowing one to separate physical and chemical effects, such as melting from decomposition. This makes High-Speed DSC ideal for the characterization of novel materials and optimization of production processes.

Not only does High-Speed DSC allow one to simulate processing conditions, but it is also far more sensitive and faster compared to a conventional DSC experiment. The Flash DSC 1 by METTLER TOLEDO—receiving the R&D 100 award—introduces innovative sensor technology that enables greater insight into a material's thermal properties and behavior.

This guide discusses the benefits of Flash DSC technology, supported by real application examples, for obtaining valuable information about materials that was previously out of reach.
