    ASTM C408

    Significance and Use

    This test method provides information useful in understanding and quantifying such parameters as thermal shock resistance and ability to conduct or dissipate heat.

    1. Scope

    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 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.
