A lot of insulating materials only list the density and K-Factor. Is there a way to obtain thermal conductivity (Watts/[m*C]) so it can be modeled in say finite element program. No software i know of can work with K-Factor. And for a bonus question. can you also calculate the specific heat of a material from these values for the same reason - transient thermal modeling (needs specific heat). Try finding insulation on the web that lists specific heat of the material. I have yet to find a supplier that has specific heat information about their product readily available.

Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?
