This test method defines the procedure for the determination of the curing-characteristic and glass transition temperature of non-metallic materials (e.g. preimpregnated and neat resin systems, adhesives) for aerospace use by Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC).
The results obtained by this method may be useful for:
- derivation of the optimum cure cycle (only together with other test methods e.g. Tg determination)
- assessment of the condition of the resin
- assessment of the ageing behavior of the resin
