TLX PCM

The first cargo cover to incorporate Phase Change Material (PCM) into its structure. This cover self-regulates its performance according to the conditions, by recharging and freezing at 19°C and absorbing heat up until 25°C+. Being able to encapsulate PCM within the physical fibres of the thermal blanket gives a simple to use all in one product. This unique system delivers a robust, thin, flexible and easy to handle solution. The outer surfaces of TLX PCM incorporate a low-emissivity surface designed to reflect over 97% of thermal radiation over the measured spectral range.

  • 7 hrs Protection (40°C ambient temp)
  • 2.85 kg total weight
  • Reflects 97% of thermal radiation over the measured spectral range
  • TLX Fibre-Flex non-leak PCM system
  • Strong, flexible, easy to handle
  • Waterproof
  • Used for pharmaceutical, chemical, perishable and healthcare shipments

 

About PCMs

Phase Change Materials (PCMs) are special thermal energy storage materials being extensively used as a reliable source of energy to maintain required temperatures in various industries. They use chemical bonds to store and release heat. The thermal energy transfer occurs when a material changes from a solid to a liquid or from a liquid to a solid. This is called a change in state or 'phase'.

Why use PCM in a cargo cover?

Phase Change Materials are ideal for thermal energy storage as they are highly cost effective, stable and environmentally friendly. PCMs are ideal for cold chain transportation/storage, temperature controlled packaging for food and pharmaceuticals. They give consistency in performance over a substantial number of cycles, constant temperature maintenance during the release and absorption of Energy.
