BASF’s Micronal® Phase Change Material (PCM) has been incorporated into the ceiling tiles of the Victorian Terrace presentation room to even out indoor temperature fluctuations by absorbing heat and releasing it when the room temperature falls.

How does it work?

Micronal® PCM is made of a polymer coating, which contains a pure wax mixture that stores latent heat. When the temperature rises, the wax melts and the PCM absorbs heat. When the indoor temperature drops, the wax solidifies, and heat is emitted. This keeps the surrounding room at a constant and comfortable temperature.

Some key benefits
