The present sample shows a glass transition at 41°C in the 2nd heating (green), which is relatively low for polyamide 6.10, as well as a broad melting range with a total melting enthalpy of 71 J/g. The structure of the melting peak in the 2nd heating
indicates the presence of different crystalline phases. The temperature of the endothermal main peak at 218°C is in the typical range for PA6.10.
Immediately before melting, an exothermal post-crystallization occurred in the 1st heating (blue). The shallow signals between 90°C and approx. 140°C (also 1st heating) could be caused by the release of stress in the material and/or evaporation of water.
