Researchers seeking thermal conductivity values of metals tend to lean towards book values. Although these figures are accurate they lack the ability to determine the conductivity of new advanced composite metals that contain various quantities of other materials.
Copper (Cu) is among the most thermally conductive metals. The high thermal efficiency of copper makes it a better solution than some lower priced solutions. Recently, the TCi’s range was extended to measure highly-conductive metals such as copper, (~ 400 W/mK). Recent test results on the three samples of pure copper are presented below.
