Title: DuPont (TM) Energain ®
DuPont™ Energain® is an aluminum-laminated panel containing a copolymer and a paraffin wax compound. Simplified, below 18°C the wax remains in a solidified state. When room temperature rises past a threshold, a phase change takes place and the paraffin wax melts, absorbing the heat from the room into the panel. Conversely, when the temperature drops, the paraffin wax re-solidifies, releasing heat into the room. By stabilizing room temperature at both ends of the scale, DuPont™ Energain® provides greater comfort, can significantly reduce air conditioning and heating costs, and enables the construction of sustainable and cost-efficient buildings.
