Phase Change Materials
Lightweight construction methods often have poor thermal mass characteristics and tend to quickly heat up and cool down beyond the comfortable temperature range if left uncontrolled. External, energy intensive cooling or heating is therefore required to create a comfortable environment all year-round. CrodaTherm™ bio-based phase change materials can be applied to lightweight building methods to “put back in” high thermal mass characteristics.
CrodaTherm materials are ideal for passive or active cooling systems that absorb heat from a room during the day and then return it at night.
