Paper Title:
Preparation and Properties of Cement Bricks Based Paraffin for Thermal Energy Storage by Phase Change
  Abstract

Using paraffin as phase change material, expanded perlite (EP) as porous materials, the EP/paraffin was prepared by vacuum impregnation treatment and tested by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Adding other building materials, cement bricks based paraffin (CBBP) for thermal energy storage were molded and tested by means of water absorption, compressive strength and actual working of thermal energy storage. The testing results showed that paraffin was absorbed into the holes and cracks of EP, and CBBP had not linear change of various properties versus amount of cement or paraffin. Its mechanical strength was full compliance with national standard GB 21144-2007-T. At last, by phase change material exothermic or endothermic, CBBP effectively regulated outdoor surface temperature in summer: in temperature rising stage, CBBP was 4.63 °C lower than general cement bricks (GCB, no paraffin); in the cooling stage, CBBP was 2.30 °C higher than GCB.
