Thermal analysis techniques are widely used to aid the processing of composites and adhesives. These techniques can assist at all stages of processing from assessment of input materials, through evaluation of optimal processing conditions and quality control of the finished material, to assessment of performance characteristics.
This Measurement Good Practice Guide covers three of the most common thermal analysis techniques. The advantages and disadvantages of each technique are identified and discussed. Following this discussion, recommendations are made on the choice of technique. A recommended procedure for each technique is presented together with a precision statement that provides a measure of uncertainty associated with these procedures.
