In many technical processes, material behaviors depend on the applied heating or cooling rates. For example, when investigating crystallization behavior that occurs during the injection molding process, it is essential to replicate the heating rates experienced during the actual process. To perform such experiments, extremely high heating and cooling rates are required, which cannot be achieved using conventional DSC instruments. As a result, fast-scanning calorimetry was developed.

Fast-Scanning Calorimetry Using Flash DSC Technology

The Flash DSC uses innovative technology to perform fast-scanning calorimetry with ultra-high heating and cooling rates of up to 3,000,000 K per second, in the temperature range of -95 to +1000 °C. This allows measurements to be performed that are not possible using conventional DSC, often revealing hidden properties of a material. It is ideal for investigating rapid crystallization and reorganization behaviors.
