Interactive Plastic

Colour changing masterbatches can be added to standard plastics for injection moulding and extrusion, to create a vivid change of colour which is activated by changes in temperature (thermochromic) or UVlight (photochromic).

We can supply universal thermochromic masterbatch suitable for polypropylene, polyethylene, polystyrene, ABS, and pvc which can be dosed in at between 3% to 10% according to products thickness and required colour intensity.

For thermochromics, activation temperatures range from zero to 65°C. A wide variety of colours are available such as from translucent to a colour, or colour to colour such as green to yellow, purple to pink, red to yellow, blue to white, brown to yellow.
