Thermal Conductivity

www.lasercomp.com  State of the art instruments with new developments at least yearly.  Autosamplers too.  Covering vacuum panels, aerogels, foams, solids and liquids and most metals or alloys too.  T range is from -10C for foams to over 250C for more solid materials.  For the last 15 to 20 years these have been the world market leaders and two such apparatus are in use both at the National Physical Lab in Teddington and at the BBA in Garston who test all building material used in the UK market.

Notes to follow

Polymer Standards

For deuterated polymers and monomers,  low polydispersity co-polymers and polymers for calibration or research.  Please see www.polymersource.com and www.ampolymer.com for most of our range.  We offer an educational discount to Universities in Europe.
