Thermal analysis is used to test many building materials used in construction. Many of these materials are often addressed according to their composition—laminate as composite, adhesives as thermosets, etc.

A few common applications in construction are:
  • Determining cement limestone content
  • Curing cement
  • Drying of paints and coating
  • Measuring environmental effect on adhesives (e.g., water on epoxy paint)
  • Curing time and glass transitions
