Differential Scanning Calorimetry (Mettler Toledo DSC 3+)


Determination of heat flow associated with chemical and physical transformations of a sample as a function of temperature or time.

Can be applied to:

Metals, plastics, ceramics, glass, composites, pharmaceuticals, food, chemicals

Test method standards:

ISO 11357 and ISO 28343

Test procedure:

A small sample is inserted into the DSC next to the reference sample. Changes in enthalpy are measured as function of temperature or time.


Small sample needed (mg), temperature range -90 to 700°C, N2 flow.
Heating rate 0.02 up to 300K/min, Cooling rate 0.02 up to 20K/min.


Melting behaviour, crystallisation and nucleation, polymorphism, liquid-crystalline transitions, phase diagrams and composition, glass transition, reactivity, reaction kinetics, curing, stability, miscibility, effect of plasticizers, thermal history, heat capacity (changes), reaction and transition enthalpies, purity, etc.

Lead time:
