    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers the heat flow calibration of differential scanning calorimeters over the temperature range from -130°C to +800°C.

    1.2 This practice may involve the use of hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. It is the responsibility of whoever uses this standard to establish appropriate safety practices, and to determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.3 Values given in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. Where appropriate, traditional values and units may appear in parenthesis following the SI designations.

    1.4 Computer or electronic based instruments, techniques or data manipulation equivalent to this practice may also be used.

    1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems associated with its use. It is the responsibility of whoever uses this standard to consult and establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. See also Section 6.
