Energy Performance Evaluation of Heat-storage Gypsum Board with Hybrid SSPCM Composite

Gypsum board with hybrid shape-stabilized PCM (hybrid SSPCM) was developed and it is composed of n-octadecane and beeswax based SSPCM. The characteristics of the hybrid SSPCM gypsum boards were analyzed by fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, differential scanning calorimeter (DSC), enthalpy analysis, thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and thermal conductivity analyzer (TCi). From the analyses, the hybrid SSPCM led to enhanced thermal storage property and that the gypsum board with 30 wt% of hybrid SSPCM has a high latent heat capacity. And the SSPCM led to a enhancement of the thermal conductivity of gypsum board by thermal conductivity analysis.

This paper highlights application of the C-Therm TCi Thermal Conductivity Analyzer.
