Phase Change Material 19
Phase change material 19 is a phase change material derived from plant-based feedstocks and is supplied in the form of a solid wax at room temperature. It is used in temperature controlled packaging due to its excellent latent heat properties that can protect temperature sensitive goods. The material is often engineered into a suitable packaging design to keep goods at a constant temperature over a long period of time.
