Abstract: In this study, the effect of freeze casting method to fabricate thermal insulators is analyzed. Gelation freezing was done to create unique honeycomb-like microstructures with high porosity. A thermal analyzer was used to measure the thermal conductivity of the insulators with the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that the insulators exhibited very low thermal conductivities.
