PE materials such as high-density polyethylene (HDPE) are often used for the production of packaging materials and films. Differential scanning calorimetry is often used to characterize the melting behavior of such materials, but the DSC 200 F3 Maia® can do even more. Due to its excellent low-temperature performance and outstanding sensitivity, the system also allows the detection of the glass transition (at –119.9°C). This extremely weak step in the DSC-curve is presented in the embedded picture in more detail.

DSC 3500 Sirius

The DSC 3500 Sirius combines compactness, robustness and ease-of-use with high detection sensitivity, thus offering optimal conditions for quality assurance and failure analysis in areas such as foods, cosmetics, polymers, technical textiles, and organic and inorganic materials.
