Thermal Conductivity of Car Thermostat sealant?


....just curious... it hardens, and bonds the two connecting pieces.... just curious how well it conducts heat before testing it out. Its silicon based, so it doesn't conduct electricity (already tested that on flashlight.. heh)

That stuff only prevents the thermostat from leaking coolant. Wouldn't be a good conductor AFAIK.
