Liquid Crystal Thermochromic Colour Changing SheetSFXC
Liquid Crystal Thermochromic Sheets transform through a rainbow of colours at the touch of a hand . . .
Vibrant red, orange, green and blue colours appear when the sheet reaches your chosen temperature bandwidth.
SFXC Liquid Crystal Sheets are flexible with a semi-permanent adhesive backing, meaning they can be applied to plastic or card and cut using scissors, cutting knife or guillotine.
What is Liquid Crystal?
Liquid Crystals are organic chemicals with a twisted helical molecular structure. These expand and contract as the temperature rises and falls, displaying its wonderful range of colours. The change is reversible so it can be enjoyed over and over again!
Applications include engineering, heat mapping, education, arts and crafts, jewellery and interior design.
Using SFXC Liquid Crystal Sheets - a creative example
An artist called Andy O'Rourke used our Thermochromic LC sheets for his Snow Dog project. These 3D mascots are decorated by local artists. After being positioned around a town or city, locals and tourists are encouraged to hunt for each Snow Dog and take a photo to prove they've found one! After the event, each dog is auctioned off and the money is given to charity.
Andy chose Liquid Crystal Sheets with different activation temperatures so his Snow Dog reacted to both hot and cold temperatures (really handy for an outdoor installation!). He then cut and applied each piece to form beautiful patterns on his adorable Snow Dog.
See Andy's amazing work in the video and images below!
