These polymers typically exhibit conductivities in the order of one millionth of a reciprocal ohm per centimeter. Dielectric Heating (Radio Frequency Heating, High Frequency Heating). Heating a polymer by internal molecular friction and stress induced by an alternating current of sufficient frequency and intensity. Most polymers have dielectric loss characteristics sufficiently high to be heated in this highly efficient fashion. Dielectric Heat Sealing An important sealing method, widely ...

The same unit is used, the reciprocal ohm (mho). The term conductivity also has the same significance for electrolytes as for solid conductors, being conductance per unit length of path. Another term applied to electrolytes is equivalent conductance, which is the product of conductivity and the volume (in cubic centimeters) of solvent containing 1 gram-equivalent weight of solute at a specified concentration, measured when placed between electrodes 1 centimeter apart. The molar ...
