Blocks - Thermal Values

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Quick question to the experts:

 

What is the difference between these blocks? Why are they measured differently?

 

Block 1 - Thermal Value (at 3% moisture)        k = 0.24W/m°C

https://www.plasmor.co.uk/uploads/files/Brochures & Data Sheets 2017/Product Data Sheets/Building Blocks Data Sheets/Ultra Lightweight Aggregate Blocks/F127_PDS_FIBOLITE_W03_17.pdf

 

Block 2 - Thermal Conductivity (K Value) 0.25 (int) – 0.27 (ext) W/mK

https://www.bpindex.co.uk/res/pdfs/b5c123b13c1df9.pdf

 

Block 1 is measured in W/m°C   

Block 2 is measured in W/mk

 

Whats the difference, which has better performance?

 

Thanks,

 

Wozza.

K and C are interchangeable as 1c = 1K

Thank you Peter, that explains a lot, I was wondering if I needed to convert one to the other or if it was metric vs imperial.
