In this study the hydration/dehydration kinetics are studied of a thermochemical material (TCM), CaCl2, stabilized with aramide. The experiments show that the TCM can be stabilized with help of aramide within three cycles. The material show constant hydration/dehydration rate over seven cycles, but that the hydration/dehydration characteristics are slower than for pure material after 10 cycles.
