Binodal layer ("Phase Freezeout") and rarefaction shock in Hot Dense Matter (HDM), adiabatically expanded trough two-phase region of entropic phase transition are under discussion. For example it could be Quark-Hadron Phase Transition (QHPT) or any other ''delocalization-driven'' phase transition (pressure-ionization PT, pressure-dissociation PT in electromagnetic HDM etc) when equilibrium thermodynamic path of such adiabatic expansion crosses the two-phase region of considered entropic phase transition. Binodal layer appears at the entering of the two-phase region, while rarefaction shock appears at the stage of leaving the two-phase region of entropic PT.
