This work shows to the reader a general description about the techniques of classic thermal analysis as known as Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), Differential Thermal Analysis (DTA) and Thermal Gravimetric Analysis. These techniques are very used in science and material technologies (metals, metals alloys, ceramics, glass, polymer, plastic and composites) with the purpose of characterizing precursors, following and control of process, adjustment of operation conditions, thermal treatment and verifying of quality parameters.
