40 Years: In 2024 Rubber Consultants Celebrate 40 Years


Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is a thermo analytical technique which measures how physical properties of a sample change, as a function of time or temperature. 

In DSC, both the sample and the reference sample are heated and the difference in the amount of heat required to increase the temperature of a sample and reference is measured.

Rubber Consultants can also use a Step-Scan Modulated DSC approach which allows enhanced characterisation of complex samples where the components can interfere with each other.

  • Determine the glass transition (Tg) temperature of rubbery and crystalline materials of single polymers and polymer blends 
  • Study the melting and crystallization process of variety of materials 
  • Study the cure reactions and the heat capacity of the sample
  • Investigate the curing and glass transitions of various resins and materials that have weak Tg signal, using the Step-Scan Modulated DSC method
