Abstract A simple and flexible way for integrating phase change materials (PCMs) with buildings was presented, which involved forming a PCM into a board and then embedding the board into an aluminous gusset plate that has been widely used in roofs and walls of buildings for decorating. Specifically, a CaCl2·6H2O/expanded perlite (EP) composite PCM with a melting point of 27.38 °C and a latent heat value of 87.44 J/g was employed to fabricate several boards through vacuum compression. The board… Expand
