Melting Point/Melting Range
Melting Range or Melting Point is defined as those points of temperature within which, or the point at which, the first detectable liquid phase is detected to the temperature at which no solid phase is apparent. Factors influencing this phase transition include sample size, particle size, the efficiency of heat diffusion, and the rate of heating. For some materials, the melting process may be accompanied by simultaneous decomposition, which may impair the precise determination of this property.
Robertson Microlit Laboratories can determine melting range, melting point, or decomposition temperature of submitted samples either visually, or instrumentally and precisely through the interpretation of an acquired thermogram.
