Application Note: Better Characterization of Hot Melt Adhesives Using the Double Furnace DSC
4 May 2012

In order to demonstrate the use of the Double Furnace DSC for the better and more complete characterization of hot melt adhesives, a two stage adhesive was analyzed. The ability to perform rapid cooling experiments on the hot melt adhesives is important. The Double Furnace DSC is shown to provide the very fast response times necessary to be able to perform these high velocity measurements.
