CrodaTherm™ Phase Change Materials

Many industrial and consumer electronic devices only run at peak power output for a short period of time every day. Cooling systems must be sized for this peak heat output, increasing costs and complexity. Using CrodaTherm™ bio-based phase change materials allows cooling systems to be sized for average, rather than peak heat loads. Phase change materials melt to absorb heat and release it during idle or low power periods.

Advanced Materials

We offer solutions for improving rheology and dispersancy of conductive inks and pastes that are used in manufacturing of electronics.  Applications include: high performance dispersants, rheology modifiers, wetting agents, plasticisers and corrosion inhibitors.

Polymer Additives

The inclusion of speciality additives enables resin producers and processors the ability to create high quality and high complexity products. PVC is a plastic commonly used in electrical tape applications because of its natural impact resistance and ability to support high static charge. Croda offers a range of external and internal additives to improve the properties of PVC, for applications such as that in the electrical market. Properties include mold release, anti-static, UV protection, anti-fog and plasticisation.
