determination of specific heat capacity

Specific heat capacity (cp) is a material property describing the energy required to induce a certain change in the temperature of a unit mass of the material. To measure this quantity, a differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) may be used. The DSC measures specific heat capacity by heating a sample and measuring the temperature difference between the sample and a reference (ISO 11357-4).

why impact?

Some members of impact’s team have over 30 years of polymer experience, with over 120 years combined, and are internationally regarded as product experts including sitting on various CEN committees and being a notified body for construction products (Note because of our notified body status we cannot undertake consultancy on oil storage tanks), we can often identify potential sources of weakness in products without even undertaken testing using our experience.
