Thermal Conductivity

The thermal transmission properties of a material may change due to variability in the compound, impurities and environmental effects (moisture and temperature). ARDL’s thermal conductivity testing provides determination of the steady-state thermal transmission properties of thermal insulations or other materials. Flat slab specimens are measured using a heat flow meter apparatus.
