What is K-value?

Heat transferred by conduction is governed by the fundamental equation described by Fourier’s Law: (rate of heat flow) = k x (Area) x (Temperature Gradient):
The ability of an object to move heat from one part of itself to another is called “thermal conductivity”.
The higher the K value, the faster the development of heat in the object. The lower the K value per a given time/area, the better the resistance conduction heat transfer
