Price, Duncan M.; Jarratt, Mark; Thermal Conductivity of PTFE and PTFE Composites. Proc. 28th North American Thermal Analysis Society Conference, October 4-6 (2000) Orlando, Florida, USA, pp. 579-584

The thermal conductivity of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) was studied using an instrumented thermal conductivity apparatus (Lees Disk) and by DSC. The former method was used to study the effect of incorporating fillers into a PTFE/glass fiber fabric used for conveyor belts in food processing. The effect of crystallinity on thermal conductivity was investigated and different methods of crystallinity determination were compared.
