Phase Change Materials(PCMs), or latent heat storage materials for building applications, are an emerging technology in the UK. They offer a solution for improving the thermal performance and comfort of low thermal mass buildings currently being constructed using modern materials and techniques and also when renovating existing building stock. Find out what PCMs are, how they work, their benefits, current technical developments and available products.
