This test method defines the procedure for the estimation of the extent of cure of certain non-metallic materials (e.g. preimpregnated and neat resin systems, adhesives) for aerospace use. The extent of cure is estimated by Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) measurements of uncured (reference) and cured materials. Additional evidence on the extent of cure may be gained by combining results from this method with those obtained by other techniques.
