Thermal Conductivity of a Polyimide Foam

  • D. D. Burleigh


The thermal conductivity of a flexible polyimide closed-cell foam has been measured from 100°K to 300°K by a guarded hot plate technique (ASTM C 177). Polyimide foam is useful as an insulator from the cryogenic range through 590°K. It shows great promise for future use as a replacement for polyurethane foam.
