TLX PCM

The first cargo cover to incorporate Phase Change Material (PCM) into its structure. This cover self-regulates its performance according to the conditions, by recharging and freezing at 19°C and absorbing heat up until 25°C+. Being able to encapsulate PCM within the physical fibres of the thermal blanket gives a simple to use all in one product. This unique system delivers a robust, thin, flexible and easy to handle solution. The outer surfaces of TLX PCM incorporate a low-emissivity surface designed to reflect over 97% of thermal radiation over the measured spectral range.

  • 7 hrs Protection (40°C ambient temp)
  • 2.85 kg total weight
  • Reflects 97% of thermal radiation over the measured spectral range
  • TLX Fibre-Flex non-leak PCM system
  • Strong, flexible, easy to handle
  • Waterproof
  • Used for pharmaceutical, chemical, perishable and healthcare shipments

 

About PCMs

Phase Change Materials (PCMs) are special thermal energy storage materials being extensively used as a reliable source of energy to maintain required temperatures in various industries. They use chemical bonds to store and release heat. The thermal energy transfer occurs when a material changes from a solid to a liquid or from a liquid to a solid. This is called a change in state or 'phase'.

Why use PCM in a cargo cover?

Phase Change Materials are ideal for thermal energy storage as they are highly cost effective, stable and environment friendly. PCMs are ideal for cold chain transportation/storage, temperature controlled packaging for food and pharmaceuticals. They give consistency in performance over substantial number of cycles, constant temperature maintenance during the release and absorption of Energy.

TLX2

TLX 2 gives short-wave solar radiation protection to temperature sensitive goods when exposed to direct sunlight conditions

The entire product is breathable and waterproof allowing the exchange of air and water vapour through the material, this helps the internal moisture levels within the pallet not to reach harmful levels. This technology is combined with a low-emissivity brilliant white outer skin which reflects a great amount of the visible spectrum solar radiation, reducing heat gain inside the pallet. Offers protection for goods transported from sun light, heat, cold, rain, snow, frost and humidity

  • 1mm breathable white cover - Releases moisture and provides protection from temperature excursions
  • Protect the goods transported from sun light, heat, cold, rain, snow, frost and humidity
  • Waterproof 
  • Used for perishables, chemical and pharmaceutical shipments
  • 1-2 minutes to fit, available in all standard pallet sizes from stock
