New Testing Capabilities - Thermal Conductivity per ASTM E1580
Thermal conductivity values are used to measure heat flow through a material. It is the measure of resistance of materials to thermal transmission. The test method is utilized for solids of a representative thickness. Thermal conductivity of films, pastes and melts can also be determined.
Data generated includes: Sample Thickness, Mean Sample Temperature, Thermal Resistance and Thermal Conductivity. Thickness (mm) divided by Thermal Resistance (m2•K / W) equals Thermal Conductivity (W / m•K).
