Solid / Solid PCMs

We have recently introduced a specialised group of PCMs that undergo a solid/solid phase transition with the associated absorption and release of large amounts of heat. These materials change their crystalline structure from one lattice configuration to another at a fixed and well-defined temperature, and the transformation can involve latent heats comparable to the most effective solid/liquid PCMs. Such materials are useful because, unlike solid/liquid PCMs, they do not require nucleation to prevent supercooling. Additionally, because it is a solid/solid phase change, there is no visible change in the appearance of the PCM (other than a slight expansion/contraction), and there are no problems associated with handling liquids, i.e. containment, potential leakage, etc.

Currently, we have a range of solutionsfrom +25°C (77°F) upto +180°C (356°F), although we are in the process of developing the range further. For more information please use the contact link or email info@pcmproducts.net with details of your requirements
