We are committed to academic research and new product innovation across our industries and look to expand the benefit of using PCM solutions for thermal

     Types of Organic PCMs

    Phase Change Material info

    • Paraffin (Wax)
    • Fatty Acids (Oils)
    • Polyglycols

    Key Advantages

    • Chemically stable
    • High enthalpy (high heat storage)
    • Safe and non-reactive
    • No loss of effectiveness with cycling
    • Can be microencapsulated

    Development Kit

    The Microtek Development Kit assists in identifying the best solution to meet specific requirements. By selecting up to three specific PCM samples including type, form and temperature, the Development Kit provides the resources to personally test and experiment with the PCM materials to determine the best performance for your application.
