Heat Storage Materials
(Heatorage™ / Comformer™)

What is Heatorage™ / Comformer™?

  1. Latent heat storage polymers that retain the solid phase when the phase changes.
  2. Heatorage™ and Comformer™ possess heat storage properties; there is no concern for leaking of the liquid-heat storage component like paraffin.
  1. Various applications (sheets, foam, fibers, and others)

For sheet usage: Heatorage™

  1. Controls exothermic and endothermic behavior at specific temperatures of 20 to 50℃.
  1. Keeps a solid state after molding at a practical temperature. Does not need microcapsule, aluminum package, plastic package or the like to prevent leaking of the heat storage component.
  2. Molded products are easily processed (cut, nailed, stapled and the like) and can be applied to architectural material, automobile, and electronic device, and many others.

Application : Architectural Material

1. In summer

Heatorage™ dramatically reduces the amount of heat that enters a room in the summer months if installed inside roof insulation. It contributes to energy conservation by reducing air conditioning use.

2. In winter

Heatorage™ installed in the floor or walls of a room can store solar heat from windows during the daytime and release it into the room during the nighttime. Controls temperature fluctuations, and contributes to reduced air conditioning use.

For fiber usage:Comformer™

  1. Comformer™ fibers can be imparted with temperature-control functionality (25-35℃)
  2. Comformer™ can be subjected to melt spinning to produce the fiber without the use of microcapsule of paraffin. It possesses a wide temperature range during heat absorption and dissipation.
  3. By applying to clothes or bedding, the fiber absorbs body heat when it is hot and dissipates the heat when it is cool, thereby providing a more comfortable environment.
  4. By applying to non-woven fabric, it can be used in various fields related to thermal control (including use in automobiles, for agriculture, civil engineering, and construction or the like).

Application: Clothing

1. Summer

Temperature change inside clothing when moving from a cool environment to the outside.

2. Winter

Temperature change inside clothing when moving from a warm environment to the outside.
