It can be also concluded from the DSC heating curves that, the ageing increases the heat of fusion and percentage crystallinity of the film and has no significant effect in the crystallinity melting temperature Tm.

Thermal energy is stored primarily as latent energy through the heat of fusion associated with phase change of the encapsulated PCM.
With semi-crystalline polymers, conductive melting is further restrained by the requirement for the breakdown of the crystal Unity, or the heat of fusion.
Glauber's salt remained in the short list since it has a high reported latent heat of fusion and thermal conductivity.
During solidification, latent heat of fusion is released as the molten metal becomes solid.

Crystalline polymers require an additional element called the heat of fusion, which is the energy required to convert a polymer from a solid to a liquid at the crystalline melting point.
This is shown in detail in figure 3a, which shows the melting point and the heat of fusion for P-E polymers made under similar polymerization conditions, but differing in the ethylene content.
As energy is applied to the upper portion of the bath, it can not superheat the molten iron until sufficient energy has been provided to accommodate the heat of fusion requirements to melt all of the charge.
