Abstract: Plasters have many applications such as increasing the thermal resistance of walls, moderating humidity, and maintaining indoor air quality. In this study, the hygrothermal properties of two types of plaster were tested. The thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of the plaster samples were measured using the transient plane source (TPS) method at 23 °C. Results showed that the plaster with lower density and higher porosity had the lowest thermal conductivity.
