While mechanical properties of several magnesium alloys subjected to the ARB process have been studied, the physical properties have been reported only for some magnesium alloys. These properties are influenced by the texture developed during the ARB process and the temperature load. In the presented contribution, we studied thermal conductivity of an AZ31 magnesium alloy after one and two passes through the rolling mill. Thermal diffusivity was measured with the laser-flash method in the temperature range between 20 and 350°C. Thermal conductivity depends on the number of rolling passes. The microstructure and texture of sheets are significant factors influencing thermal properties.
