Thermal analysis: Differential Scanning Calorimetry and Thermogravimetric Analysis (DSC and TGA) of SEBS blends with phase change materials (PCMs) have been studied in this paper. SEBS blends were made using two transparent SEBS commercial grades with extreme hardness values. The first thermal property determined in SEBS blends was the evaluation of the thermal degradation at high temperatures DSC. Another thermal property of the SEBS blends consists in knowing the degradation process of the blend TGA. It should be emphasized the good resistance to degradation for both, the two commercial grades of virgin SEBS with extreme hardness, and blends obtained with these materials, showing a remarkable effect on thermal regulation close to the melting point of the PCM, 37 C.
