ChameleonCore by Schmetzer Industries is a smarter insulation product that significantly reduces energy costs.
The Hero of ChameleonCore Product line is the Phase Changing centre. The silicone based foam is impregnated during the manufacturing process with a Phase Change material.
Phase Change Material (PCM) is a substance that is engineered to freeze and melt at a specified temperature, in our case 23 degrees Celsius. As the material changes its state from solid to liquid, the material must draw substantial amounts of heat energy from its surrounding environment. It’s the reverse effect as the PCM changes its state from liquid to Solid. During this process, the PCM must Release substantial amounts of energy into the surrounding environment to return to the solid state.
This transfer of energy, centralised at 23 degrees Celsius creates a large window of time that the surrounding environment is “passively” controlled to maintain this temperature. This eliminates the need for Heating/cooling in this time window. If the ambient indoor temperature does rise above 25 degrees or fall below 21 degrees, artificial heating or cooling is required to return the indoor environment back to the comfortable temperature zone.
This process can massively reduce heating and cooling costs and associated greenhouse gas emissions.
