1 Thermal inertia types are defined in terms of lambda as follows:

Type 1: Greater than 0.0045 (e.g., most metals).

Type 2: More than 0.0005 but not more than 0.0045 (e.g., glass).

Type 3: More than 0.0001 but not more than 0.0005 (e.g., most plastics).

Type 4: 0.0001 or less (e.g., future polymeric materials).

The thermal inertia of a material can be obtained by multiplying the thermal conductivity (cal./cm./sec./degrees C.) by the density (gm./cm. 3) by the specific heat (cal./gm./degrees C.).

2 All types.

3 No limit.
