Application Note: Better Characterization of Polymer Blends Using StepScan DSC
23 May 2012

This note shows that the high performance of Pyris 1 DSC provides outstanding results on materials, such as polymer blends. The use of the StepScan DSC technique yields enhanced characterization information by separating out the reversible and irreversible thermal events. The high resolution of the Pyris 1 DSC coupled with the StepScan DSC technique yielded all three Tg’s of each of the polymer tri-blend components.
