The measured glass transition points were determined to be

  • Onset point : 60.1°C
  • Endset point : 76.6°C
  • Midpoint of the temperature range: 69.9°C (considered as Tg to simplify)

Tg is a temperature range, rather than a specific temperature. The convention is to report a single temperature defined as the midpoint of the temperature range, bounded by the tangents to the two flat regions of the heat flow curve.

Conclusions:
The glass transistion temperature (Tg) of esters of maleated rosin with glycerol was determined to be 69.9°C.
Executive summary:

The determination of the glass transition temperature range was performed using Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) in accordance with OECD Guideline 102.

Since the test item is not pure, a range is best to characterize it. The following glass transition characteristics were observed:  

  • Onset point : 60.1°C
  • Endset point : 76.6°C
  • Midpoint of the temperature range: 69.9°C (considered as Tg to simplify)

Tg is a temperature range, rather than a specific temperature. The convention is to report a single temperature defined as the midpoint of the temperature range, bounded by the tangents to the two flat regions of the heat flow curve.
