Areas of expertise
LCR Hallcrest specialises in the following fields:-
Thermochromism – temperature measurement through colour change.
Photochromism – detecting the presence of light through colour change.
Hydrochromism – detecting the presence of water through colour change.
Microencapsulation – protection of sensitive materials through formation of an outer wall
The aim of our team is to use the above processes to develop finished products that are accurate, non-toxic and easy to use that meet the needs of our customers.
Above all we love a challenge!
We have in-house laboratories, production and creative facilities in the UK and USA, and can work with you on any new colour-changing or thermochromic concepts.
We can tailor our current technologies or develop specifically to a client’s brief, and are also happy to conduct this work under a mutual Non Disclosure Agreement.
We have been manufacturing thermochromic temperature sensitive devices since 1969 and provide reversible technology in inks, coatings, labels, intelligent packaging and plastic masterbatch.
