Abstract: The authors highlight different methods of studying the purity, composition, and structural changes of polymeric and glass materials. These methods include the use of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and the transient plane source (TPS) technique. The quality of the Hot Disk TPS Technique is outlined and the authors praise the high quality of the Hot Disk machine. In addition to this, thermal analysis is carried out on some polymeric composites (cis-polyisoprene (CPI)/trans-polyisoprene (TPI) and polystyrene (PS)/polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA)) using dynamic mechanical analysis and by the TPS technique.
