3.9.2. Measurement of Calorimetric Data

Knowledge of thermal material behavior is required to predict the process parameter in molding processes. Material data are also fundamental for any simulation of polymer replication processes. To measure the different specific data of polymers, different specialized measurement processes are developed. Determination of the glass-transition temperature and characterization of the phase transition can be achieved by the measurement of calorimetric behavior. Two related measurement systems are suitable: differential thermal analysis (DTA) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The principle of these measurements can be shown using the method of DSC.
