By employing the intuitive SmartMode user interface, test runs can be started promptly through wizards (quick-start routines), user-defined or pre-defined methods for many different polymer types (differential scanning calorimetry, DSC) or various normconform temperature programs (thermogravimetric analysis, TGA).
Now the identification of unknown polymers by means of DSC Analysis and database comparison can be done in the blink of an eye.
The Kunststoff-Institut Lüdenscheid offers a polymer database for DSC analysis with 600 data sets for different material samples, each labelled with the appropriate trade name. It includes roughly 130 different polymer types and blends. Additionally, updates and expansions of the database are offered on a regular basis.
