Heat storage

Flexible panels that store thermal energy

Infinite R™ is a phase change building material that stores energy when you don’t need it, releasing it when you do.

It works the same as ice inside a cooler, slowly melting or thawing to maintain a target temperature using the process of phase change. It drastically increases the resiliency of buildings and communities, slashes energy costs by as much as half and increases the capacity for a more comfortable world.

Storing thermal energy (either warm or cool) within the very building envelope has been so easy than with Infinite-R:

  • installs within walls, ceilings or roofs
  • allows for more stable thermal management
  • absorbs excess process heat or unwanted solar heat gains
  • frees strored energy when needed, that is over nightime or on-peak periods
  • stabilizes inside space temperatures
  • improves occupants’ comfort
  • perfect for solar applications such as with the Acero Wall
  • Phase change temperatures may vary between 17°C and 29°C
  • Phase change material: mineral based / organic
  • Standard dimensions: 16” x 96” or 24” x 96” long, (400 or 600 mm wide, 1200 mm long)
  • Thickness : 1/4” (8 mm)
  • Weight of panels: 1 lb/sq.ft (4,8 kg/m2)
  • Thermal capacity: 100 BTU/ft2 or 320 Wh/m2
  • Latent heat: 86 BTU/lb
  • Specific heat: 35 BTU/lb
  • Thermal conductivity: 0,16 W/ft/K (liquid); 0,33 W/ft/K (solid)
