A porous supporting matrix, expanded perlite (EP) is composited with a salt hydrate mixture of CaCl2·6H2O and SrCl2·6H2O (98:2 in mass ratio), to develop a nonflammable thermal storage material for building use. The salt hydrate is uniformly adsorbed on sheets of EP, and a maximum absorption capacity test shows EP can contain as high as 55 wt% the salt hydrate and keep the stable form. It is shown that the melting temperature of the composite PCM is 27.38 °C, close to that of CaCl2·6H2O, and… Expand
