Paint thermal conductivity measurement

Measurement of thermal conductivity of thin layers, for instance paint, is a challenge.

Traditional methods lead to measurement results that are too low because the contact resistance is part of their measurement. Hukseflux has the means to analyse without significant contact resistance. Our lab carries out thermal conductivity measurements of thin layers of insulating paint for many of the world’s paint manufacturers.

Soil thermal resistance measurement

How to guarantee the quality of soil thermal conductivity measurement?

Hukseflux developed traceable reference materials (Calibration Reference Cylinders) which are adapted to the needles that are used for soil thermal resistance measurement.

Temperature dependence of thermal conductivity

How do thermal properties of materials change with temperature? Usually not too much!  In some applications every W/mK counts. One user wanted to assess his data in a wider range.

In our new climate chamber we can measure the thermal conductivity of various materials in the -30 to +100 °C range.
