ASTM E793 – Enthalpies of Fusion and Crystallization by Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)
We perform differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) testing by ASTM E793 to determine the enthalpy (heat) of fusion (melting) and crystallization. This test is applicable to solid samples in granular form or in any fabricated shape from which an appropriate specimen can be cut, or to liquid samples that crystallize within the temperature range of the instrument. However, results may be affected by the form and mass of the specimen.
