Thermal Colour Changing Pigments - Orange Leaf to Lemon HazeSFXC
Orange Leaf to Lemon Haze Thermochromic pigments change from one colour to another when they reach 28°C/(82.4°F).
Simply activate with warm hands or another heat source like a hairdryer.
This Thermchromic pigment has a particle size of 97% <6um.
We recommend using around 10% to 90% pigment with your chosen medium to create a vibrant colour changing coating. Please refer to the image gallery for a demonstration on combining the pigment with a binder.
Thermochromic pigments can be easily dispersed into most non-aqueous and UV curable mediums
Ideal for applications such as fashion, design, printing, automotive, promotional, arts, crafts and promotional projects and products. These pigments cannot be used for dyeing fabrics.
SFXC® Thermal pigments can withstand most mixing procedures. SFXC® pigments are micro-encapsulated and tend to agglomerate; therefore; some shear mixing may be required to redisperse the particle within. Please avoid using a ball mill as this will crush the microencapsulation and in turn, destroy the Thermochromic Properties.
Thermochromic pigments are sensitive to UV and fluorescent lights. After several days of extreme exposure to UV, the colours will fade, and the colour change intensity will weaken. Over 600 hours of fluorescent light exposure will also damage the Thermochromic change.
Thermochromic pigments should not frequently be exposed to extreme heat. It is not recommended that the pigments are used for applications where temperatures exceed 60°C for extended periods of time. The Thermochromic pigments can withstand temperatures of 200°C for short bursts of time. Freezing the pigments will also have damaging effects.
