For over a decade, C-Therm's instrumentation has been pioneering the way many of the world’s most prominent manufacturers, research facilities, and academic institutions test and measure thermal properties of solids, liquids, pastes and powders. The technology behind the C-Therm TCi™ represents a paradigm shift in thermal conductivity measurement and earned the . This coveted international distinction is given to the top 100 innovations worldwide, and puts the technology in the distinguished company of other winners, including the , , and .

The C-Therm TCi Thermal Conductivity Analyzer was developed with a consortium of users from industry including , the , (formerly Advanced Applied Adhesives) and .  The technology has since been broadly applied by clients the world-over in characterizing , , ( / ), polymers, nuclear materials, (electronics), , ceramics, insulation, construction materials, advanced fabrics, and various other materials.

“We wanted something that was going to measure small volumes and do it in a rapid and easy format and the TCi Thermal Conductivity instrument was perfect for our needs.  The thing I like most about the TCi is it is extremely easy to use.”
“The main benefit of the TCi to our testing lab is its ease of use and short test times. It allows us to get accurate results as quickly as possible and with excellent repeatability. Our test times are only a fraction of what they are using steady state methods. Equally important, the service level has exceeded our expectations.”
“The technology has allowed us to provide accurate quality assurance for our products that wasn’t previously attainable by any other methods. The instrumentation has been a rapid and consistent means for our company to ensure that every product leaving our facility meets our rigid specifications. It has given us a competitive advantage. In fact, we’ve been awarded contracts partly due to the superiority of the instrumentation over every other means of quality testing.”
