ASTM E1356

Full Name

ASTM E1356 – Standard Test Method for Assignment of the Glass Transition Temperatures by Differential Scanning Calorimetry


This test method covers the assignment of the glass transition temperatures of materials using differential scanning calorimetry or differential thermal analysis.

This test method is applicable to amorphous materials or to partially crystalline materials containing amorphous regions, that are stable and do not undergo decomposition or sublimation in the glass transition region.
