How it works

Tap to read

PHASE 1
When the ambient temperature rises, the PCM starts to melt

PHASE 2
During the phase transition, the PCM stores energy as latent heat, maintaining a constant temperature until the cooling product is completely melted.

PHASE 3
When the ambient temperature lowers, the PCM starts to recrystalize.

PHASE 4
When the PCM starts to recrystalize, it releases the stored latent heat, while maintaining a constant temperature until all latent heat has been released.
