Glassx Comfort Store (PCM Phase Change Material) – the glass that stores, heats and cools.
GLASSX integrates 4 system components into one functional unit:
- Transparent thermal insulation
- Overheating protection
- Energy conversion and thermal storage
Heat storage takes place during the change of state (solid to liquid) of the PCM; during cooling, the stored heat is released again. The salt hydrate is hermetically sealed in transparent polycarbonate tanks.
