ASTM International - ASTM D5930-97
Standard Test Method for Thermal Conductivity of Plastics by Means of a Transient Line-Source Technique
|Publication Date:||10 March 2001|
|ICS Code (Thermoplastic materials):||83.080.20|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the thermal conductivity of plastics over a temperature range from -40 to 400oC. The thermal conductivity of materials in the range from 0.08 to 2.0 W/m.K can be measured covering thermoplastics, thermosets, and rubbers, filled and reinforced.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, 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.
Note 1--There is no current ISO document that duplicates this test method.
