Standard Test Method for Estimating the Thermal Conductivity of Leather with the Cenco-Fitch Apparatus
|Publication Date:||10 September 2000|
|ICS Code (Leather and furs):||59.140.30|
1.1 This test method covers the quantitative determination of the thermal conductivity of leather. The measured parameters are the area, the thickness, and the temperature difference between the two sides of a leather specimen. This test method is not limited to leather, but may be used for any poorly conductive material such as rubber, textiles, and cork associated with the construction of shoes. Specimens up to 0.5 in. (13 mm) thick may be run. This test method does not apply to wet blue.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are provided for information only.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
Note--Thermal conductivity must be measured under steady-state conditions; however, this transient test method can be used to estimate the thermal conductivity of leather.
