A highly thermal conductive material?

A highly thermal conductive material?

A highly thermal conductive material?

Hi thanks for reading this.

I need some advice on materials, or a pointer to the correct book/source of info.

I am searching for a cost effective material or composite, which has good thermal conductivity but is strong enough to used in a domestic setting. Preferably electrically non-conductive.

I need a plate of it to quickly heat up to circa 204 °C / 400 °F.
But lose that heat completely in under a few seconds.

I am sure there is a materials index or something out there.

This is no doubt lacking in technical terminology but i tried my best and appreciate you reading/ posting hopefully.

Thx Guys.

RE: A highly thermal conductive material?

Quite a common desire (high thermal low electrical conductivity). Diamond, but possibly boron nitride? http://www.henze-bnp.com/ . Claimed thermal conductivity 35 W/mK.

that is interesting thank you.
