Polymers - Specific Heats

Specific heat of polymers like epoxy, PET, polycarbonate and more

Specific heat of some common polymers at 0oC:

PolymerSpecific Heat
(J/(kg oC))
Epoxy resin, cured 1110
Nylon 6 1310
PET 1030
PMMA, Perspex 1270
Polycarbonate 1100
Polyethylene 1550
Polystyrene 1110
Rubber, natural - vulcanised or unvulvanised 1800
Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) 970
PVC 880
  • 1 J/(kg oC) = 2.389x10-4 kcal/(kg oC) = 2.389x10-4 Btu/(lbm oF)
