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. 

Thermal Management Resources

Having a good understanding of how PCMs work is the first step when implementing them into your research or project. 

Phase change materials are an effective solution to solve many thermal challenges. But what PCM is the best fit for your application? 

The technical aspects of PCMs need to be considered when determining the correct thermal management solution
