This section will hopefully give you a better insight in to how our range of Smart Materials work, with a little bit of history and in-depth technical articles.
Thermochromic inks react to changes in temperature by exhibiting a colour change.
Photochromic inks change colour when exposed to ultraviolet light usually from the sun or a black light.
Chameleon® Hydrochromic Inks & Coatings react to the presence of water. We make Reversible and Irreversible Hydrochromic Inks.
Liquid crystal inks
Liquid Crystal inks are highly responsive to temperature change, quickly changing colour reversibly as they are warmed or cooled.
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 or UV.
Flash Ink reversibly changes upon exposure to a beam of direct white light, becoming bright white. It disappears instantly the light source is removed.
