Melting down behaviour

During melting a batch diverse temperature-dependent chemical reactions and physical processes proceed finding expression in endothermic and exothermic effects that can be recorded as a DTA-curve.

The interpretation delivers information about the melting process. Additionally the simultaneous recording of mass loss (summary record of the amount of volatile components with a TG-curve) is extremely useful.
