PCM Construction Material Application

There are several approaches on how to integrate PCMs into building materials and structures.

  • impregnation of porous building materials
  • macro encapsulation – PCMs are hermetically closed in a container
  • shape stabilized PCMs for direct installation
  • microencapsulation – PCMs are enclosed in a small polymer capsule

Examples for PCM integrated construction material includes:

  • Concrete mixtures,cement motar
  • Wallboards and tiles
  • Gypsum plaster
