How thermal conductivity works
Thermal conductivity is a measure of how well a material conducts heat. The thermal conductivity of a material is determined by how easily electrons can flow through the material. The higher the thermal conductivity of a material, the better it conducts heat.
Thermal conductivity is affected by several factors, including the type ofmaterial, the temperature of the material, and the amount of time thatthe heat is applied. The type of material affects the thermalconductivity because different materials have different structures.The temperature of the material also affects its thermalconductivity. The higher the temperature, the more energy that isavailable for electrons to flow. The amount of time that the heatt is applied also affects thermal conductivity. If heat is appliedfor a longer period of time, more energy will be available for electronsto flow and the thermal conductivity will be increased.

What is the thermal conductivity of stainless steel
Stainless steel is a popular material used in a variety of applications due to its strength, resistance to corrosion, and thermal conductivity. It has a thermal conductivity of approximately 15 watts per meter kelvin (15 W/mK), making it roughly five times as effective at transferring heat as carbon steel.
This property makes it an ideal material for a range of industrial uses, particularly those that involve processing at high temperatures or dealing with large amounts of heat energy. For example, stainless steel parts are often used in aerospace and automotive engines due to the fact that they can transfer the considerable amounts of heat generated away from critical components quickly and effectively.
