Standard Test Method for Thermal Conductivity of Whiteware Ceramics


1.1 This test method covers a general procedure for determining the thermal conductivity of whiteware ceramics over the temperature range from 100 to 300°F (40 to 150°C).

1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI (metric) units given in parentheses are for information purposes only.

1.3 This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Significance and Use
