While inorganic spectroscopy or surface techniques are often used to study metals, thermal analysis offers several key applications in this area.

These include:
  • Determining the melting points of metals, alloys, and solders
  • Detecting of eutectic points and transitions
  • Determining curie points in magnetic materials like nickel, iron, invar, etc.
  • Measuring thermal expansion of alloys and materials
  • Measuring oxidation
