Phase Change Materials and Their Benefits in ETICS
MetadataShow full item record
The research is focused on two main points. The first point discusses the water steam condensation on the surface of ETICS and the phenomenon associated biocide assaults. In the second point, we focused on warming ETICS with the using of vibrant shades. Practical experiments have shown a positive effect of PCM on the heat-storage properties of the ETICS base coat. It was also experimentally verified that the PCM sample did not condense water vapor on the sample surface compared to the reference sample.
