How do I condition the “RT-96” for use?

  1. Store panels in a lab incubator* between 15-20°C so PCM is solid (i.e. 24 hrs. @ 15°C). Shake to verify.
  2. Before assembly, shake panels to verify PCM is solid. If liquid is heard, restart at step 2a to ensure longest hold time. Using liquid panels, or panels with a solid/liquid combination, deceases hold time.
* If the incubator temperature is ever warmer than 21°C, panels may not get completely solid (manufacturing tolerances). If stored within the temperature parameters of the product, but are still liquid, panels may be used but thehold time will decrease.
Space out panels for good air flow; if stacking, insert a spacer (pencil, tongue depressor, etc.) between each.
