Preparation of Expanded Perlite-Based Binary Eutectic Composite of Phase Change Heat Storage Materials
The binary eutectic of lauric acid-stearic acid / expanded perlite composite phase change materials (PCM) was prepared using the method of vacuum impregnation. The structures and properties of this composite PCM were characterized by FT-IR, SEM, DSC and TG analysis. The results showed that the binary eutectic of fatty acid had been composed with porous skeleton expanded perlite completely in a physical method, the phase transition temperature of composite PCM was about 33.0 °C and latent heat was 131.3 J/g. it had a good thermal stability after 100 times of recycling and gave the phase transition temperature 33.5 °C and the latent heat of 128.1 J/g respectively.
