Liquid Crystal Ink - High Grade Chiral Nematic TLC Thermochromic Coating-
Watch High Grade SFXC® Liquid Crystal Ink change through a spectrum of colours when touched with warm hands.
Chiral Nematic Liquid Crystal Ink has the brightest colour change out of all the liquid crystals. This ink is mainly used in LCD displays but can also be used for education, printing, design, and arts and crafts.
Liquid crystal ink responds to changes in temperature by displaying a fascinating change in colour. The colour change with Chiral Liquid Inks is far superior to the cholesteric imported liquid crystals.
Ink coverage = 35ml per square meter.
At room temperature, this liquid crystal coating appears to be colourless. However, as the temperature rises the coating will change from red, to green and finally blue. This spectral colour change takes places within a range of 5°C.
Liquid crystal looks its best on a black background. However, the liquid crystal ink does work well on other colours such as blue and red. Please avoid coating light colours.
Liquid crystal ink can be sprayed or brushed onto most surfaces. Liquid crystal ink has been used in hundreds of innovative applications including, jewellery, clothing, footwear, CD covers, packaging, business cards, thermometers, hot warning labels, thermochromic sheets, thermal mapping, interior design, automotive coverings. The list is endless!
Our liquid crystal has a bandwidth of 24°C to 29°C. This means that the ink starts to change at 24°C and completes its change at 29°C.
