We offer a range of bio-based phase change materials under the trade name CrodaTherm™, a product range of Croda Energy Technologies

Our unique bio-based phase change materials have high latent heats and a range of different melting points, making them ideal for use in various thermal management applications. This ranges from thermal regulation for the transportation of medical and pharmaceutical products to maintaining thermal comfort in buildings, optimising temperatures in high-end electronic devices and improving the energy efficiency of vehicles.

Sustainability and Manufacturing

All CrodaTherm materials are USDA Certified Biobased Products and contain a minimum of 74% renewable carbon content; most are 100% renewable.You can view our full list of registrations using the bio-preferred catalog here.

We develop our PCMs in house, with our own dedicated scientists at our development centre, in Gouda, The Netherlands and we are able to manufacture globally with production sites in Singapore, USA and Europe.

We engage with customers and sell directly, using our own dedicated global distribution network. Wherever you are, we are, with Croda offices in every major country throughout the world.

Croda Gouda leads the way in sustainable manufacturing practices, boasting self-sufficiency in water, and is the first oleo-chemical site in Europe to generate electricity from glycerine water.

Croda has committed to become Land, Climate and People positive by 2030. You can read more about our sustainability targets here.

    Our products are named using the peak melting temperature observed when using differential scanning calorimetry, which results in the discrepancy between the product name and peak melting point reported.

    All reported thermal measurements in the table are obtained using three-layer-calorimerty (3LC) for our waxes, which better represents the total heat capacity of the phase change material in the end application due to the larger sample size used during measurement. This is supported by RAL guidelines.

    We also use differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), which only measures latent heat but this analytical technique uses very small samples for measurement (mg). This is more appropriate for microencapsulated products, which are often used in textile and surface coatings.
