The thermal conductivity of an austenitic stainless steel standard (SRM-735) was measured in two apparatus over the combined temperature range from 20 K to 970 K and found to be within the uncertainty band claimed by the NBS above 60 K. The results were in error by as much as 4% below 60 K because of limited sensitivity of the detection instrument and low sensitivity of the thermocouples. The electrical resistivity results were within the uncertainty claimed for the standard.
