Thermochromic Powders are thermochromic microcapsules in a powder pigment form. They have been specially designed for use in non-aqueous based ink systems although their use is not limited to this. They can be used to formulate non-aqueous based flexographic, UV, Screen, Offset, Gravure and Epoxy Ink formulations (for aqueous applications we would recommend using Thermochromic slurries).
Thermochromic Powders are coloured below a particular temperature and change to colourless as they are heated through the temperature range. These pigments are available in various colours and activation temperatures.
Red thermochromic 31°C starts to vanish at 29°C by the time it reaches 31°C it turns translucent, returning to normal when the temperature reduces.
