Shape-stabilized phase change materials based on fatty acid eutectics/expanded graphite composites for thermal storage 

HVAC systems have become very popular, but require a lot of thermal storage. One way to provide this storage is through phase change materials (PCM). This report investigates using expanded graphite to improve the thermal conductivity of a capric, lauric and oleic acid mixture PCM. ...

Thermal characterization of nitrates and nitrates/expanded graphite mixture phase change materials for solar energy storage 

Nitrate materials play an important role in the development of latent thermal energy storage (LTES) systems. This paper examined the thermo-physical properties of sodium nitrate, potassium nitrate and their mixtures with expanded graphite (EG) additives for their applications in solar energy storage. The transient hot-wire ...

Flame retardancy through carbon nanomaterials: carbon black, multiwall nanotubes, expanded graphite, multi-layer graphene and graphene in polypropylene

This research aims to determine the effect of altering filler particle sizes and shapes, on the thermal and mechanical properties of polypropylene (PP). Fillers such as thermally reduced graphite oxide (TRGO), multi-layer graphene (MLG250), carbon black (CB), multiwalled nanotubes (MWNT) and expanded graphite (EG), were ...

Effect of expanded graphite on properties of high-density polyethylene/paraffin composite with intumescent flame retardant as a shape-stabilized phase change material

This research proposed a new, flame retardant, shape-stabilized phase change material (PCM), for use in thermal energy storage. Typical paraffin and high-density polyethylene has great shape retention, however is highly flammable and has a low thermal conductivity. Researchers introduced expanded graphite and an intumescent flame ...
