Abstract

Thermal energy storage (TES) systems using Microencapsulated phase change material (MPCM) have been recognized as one of the most advanced energy technologies in enhancing the energy efficiency of buildings. We examined a way to incorporate MPCMs with building materials through application for wood-based flooring. However, wood-based flooring has not performed the characteristic of heat storage. This study is aimed at manufacturing high thermal efficiency wood flooring by increasing its heat storage using MPCM. As a result, this study confirmed that MPCM is dispersed well in adhesive through the scanning electron microscopy (SEM) analysis, and we checked that this material has the characteristic of heat storage through differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) analysis. Also, we analyzed how this composition was formed by physical combination through the Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) analysis. Also, we confirmed the bonding strength of the material by using the universal testing machine (UTM).
