Phase Change Material 5
Phase change material 5 is our best selling phase change material for temperature controlled packaging solutions. Its unique thermal profile with sharp melting and crystallisation peaks protects goods by keeping them at a constant temperature. The bio-based and non-corrosive nature of the material also means packages are safer and more sustainable versus paraffin and salt-hydrate materials.
