Shown in the figure 1 are the NETZSCH libraries covering various application fields: ceramics, inorganics, metals, alloys, organics, pharma, food, cosmetics and polymers (see also figure 2). Available as an option is the KIMW database developed by the Kunststoffinstitut Lüdenscheid, Germany, with DSC curves for 1000 different commercially available polymer grades reflecting 157 different polymer types. Information about the polymer supplier, color and filler material/content is available.
Identify does not only contain measurements, but also a great variety of literature data (see figure 3). And most of such literature data entries contain several material properties (Tg, Tm, α, cp, mass changes) at once!
Of course, users can also build up their own Identify libraries (in the example above: “Phase Change Materials”) and share them with their colleagues on the computer network!
