    Significance and Use

    5.1 Dynamic mechanical analyzers monitor changes in the viscoelastic properties of a material as a function of temperature and frequency, providing a means to quantify these changes. In most cases, the value to be assigned is the temperature of the transition (or event) under study. Therefore, the temperature axis (abscissa) of all DMA thermal curves must be accurately calibrated by adjusting the apparent temperature scale to match the actual temperature over the temperature range of interest.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method describes the temperature calibration of dynamic mechanical analyzers (DMA) from –150°C to 300°C.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific precautionary statements are given in Note 7.
