Trident™ Thermal Conductivity Application Highlight: Testing Polymer Melts Using the TLS-HT300 Needle Probe

The following Application Highlight features the use of the Transient Line Source (TLS) method in the thermal conductivity testing of polymer at elevated temperatures. In recent years, the manufacturing landscape has been reshaped by the rise of additive manufacturing (also known as 3D printing) as well as advanced injection moulding processes. These types of materials are frequently used in industries such as aerospace, healthcare, and electronics due to their strength, flexibility, and lightweight nature. However, when applying these products in sensitive areas, it is important that the polymer melts used are fully characterized, both for end use, and the thermal processing that is involved.
