I found the heat transfer conductivity for rubber to be:
0.094 bt/h - foot °F
and want to convert it to:
Can someone help me?

Btu/hour foot °F is a unit of thermal conductivity, while watt/square meter °C is a unit of heat transfer coefficient.
There is no conversion between them.
You would need unit such as Btu/hour square foot °F, which is another of the same type of unit.

I should say there is no direct conversion between them, not that there is no conversion between them.

I would also think that the rubber manufacturer had written it in the wrong way. Suppose he did, then - what would
0.094 btu/h SQUARE foot °F correspond in
W/h square meter °C?

Using the I.T. definition of the Btu,
Btu/hour square foot °F * 5.6782633 = watt/hour square meter °C
I pulled this converison factor in Measure for Measure by Richard Young.

Thanks for your help!
