TGA/DSC

Thermogravimetric Analysis / Differential Scanning Calorimetry – Mettler Toledo Using this setup, the decomposition of pulp and paper or resins at elevated temperatures can be followed including a simultaneous identification of the decomposition products. Phase transitions can be determined (e.g. melting, glass transition, crystallization) and the degree of crystallinity can be calculated. Suitable samples: fibers, pulps, films in dry, and swollen state.
