Phase Change Material (PCM)
Phase Change Materials (PCM) are substances which absorb or release a large amount of "latent heat" when they go through a change in physical state ie., from solid to liquid or vice versa. During this change of phase, their temperature remains constant. This property of PCM is utilised in personal cooling products to offer constant temperature cooling. PCM technology works in high or low humidity situations and requires no air flow. This makes PCM vests perfectly suited for use use under heavy workwear, HAZMAT suits, military or fire fighter gear, mascot costumes etc. The PCM used is usually paraffin or bio based.
The product range includes cooling vests, hard hat accessories & cooling neck bands as well as products for pets and horses. Cooling vests are also available in FR versions. We offer heat stress management vests and accessories from manufacturers like Occunomix International (Miracool® Phase Change), Techniche International (COOLPAX™), Inuteq (INUTEQ PAC®) etc. PCM materials we supply are non-toxic, non-hazardous, non-corrosive and have high latent heat capacities for long lasting and efficient cooling. The inserts can be activated in a refrigerator, freezer or even a bucket filled with ice slush.
CoolPax™ from Techniche International and Miracool® Phase Change from Occunomix International contains a lighter-than-water, non-toxic carbon-based liquid, and absorb heat as it changes from a solid to a liquid. CoolPax™ freezes at 58°F/14°C and remains at that temperature for 2-3 hours.
The INUTEQ-PAC® products, powered by CrodaTherm bio-based PCM, offer higher flash fire points than their paraffin equivalents, providing a safer product for professionals dealing with strict fire safety regulations. The INUTEQ-PAC® is the only REACH and USDA certificated 100% bio-based PCM on the market. They are available in multiple temperature settings 15 °C / 21 °C / 24 °C / 29 °C.
Vests & Inserts
When you need a cooling vest that works perfectly in high humidity, low air flow areas and can work under heavy protective gear, PCM is the way to go. These cooling vests are great for police & military, oil & gas, aviation, marine, fire fighting & other first responders, heath & fitness, sports and recreation etc. PCM cooling vests are super easy to activate and durable.
