Organic Phase Change Materials And Their Textile Applications: An Overview
(Elsevier Science Bv, Po Box 211, 1000 Ae Amsterdam, Netherlands, 2012-07-20)
An organic phase change material (PCM) possesses the ability to absorb and release large quantity of latent heat during a phase change process over a certain temperature range. The use of PCMs in energy storage and thermal ...
The manufacture of microencapsulated phase change materials suitable for the design of thermally enhanced fabrics
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, PO BOX 211, 1000 AE AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS, 2007-01-15)
Thermal comfort of a fabric is one of the important tasks of the designers that require an engineering approach. In this study, we first aimed to establish a manufacturing technique based on in situ polymerization in order ...
Encapsulation of phase change materials by complex coacervation to improve thermal performances of woven fabrics
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, PO BOX 211, 1000 AE AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS, 2008-01-30)
In this study, three types of paraffin waxes suitable for textile applications, namely n-hexadecane, n-octadecane and n-nonadecane were encapsulated through complex coacervation of natural and biodegradable polymers, gum ...
