REBCO coated conductors (CCs) have the potential to widen considerably the application areas of superconductivity. Quench protection of REBCO-based devices represents one of the major obstacles to this expansion. Thermal conductivity data are mandatory ingredients for quench simulation studies. In particular, the transverse thermal conductivity ($\kappa_T$) of the CC plays a key role in case of quenches in superconducting magnets. In the present work, we report $\kappa_T$ of thermally stabilized REBCO CCs produced by different manufacturers. We have measured $\kappa_T$ on single CCs rather than on stacks of soldered tapes, this excludes spurious contributions in...
