Leveraging Improved Performance of PCMs
The thermal conductivity of phase change materials (PCMs) is an important characteristic of the material as increased heat transfer is highly desirable. The following webinar will highlight research from around the world conducted with the C-Therm TCi Thermal Conductivity Analyzer. We’ll review work from South Korea where researchers confirmed that preloading phase change materials (PCMs) with exfoliated graphic nanoplatelets (xGnPs) increases the PCMs’ thermal conductivity. These composite materials can be utilized to increase the heat transfer efficiency of systems such as radiant in-floor heating, making a significant difference in how we heat the homes of tomorrow. We’ll additionally review work from Turkey on the potential industrial applications of PCMs in textiles and clothing systems, the methods of PCM integration into textiles and the methods of evaluating their thermal properties.
This webinar will be of particular interest to engineers and researchers involved in the development of phase change materials for home heating, textile and other applications.
