At Bergad, we incorporate PCM (phase change materials) into our foams and gels in order to wick heat away from the source. Additionally, this material can be applied on top of any formulation.
Phase change materials (PCM) are substances that absorb and release thermal energy during the process of melting and freezing. When a PCM freezes, it releases a large amount of energy in the form of latent heat at a relatively constant temperature. Conversely, when such material melts, it absorbs a large amount of heat from the environment.
PCMs recharge as ambient temperatures fluctuate, making them ideal for a variety of everyday applications that require temperature control.
