Thermochromic ink is black below 15°C and translucent above 15°C. Translucent at room temperature and black when put in the fridge or below 15°C.

Thermochromic Ink is a magical coating that changes colour when exposed to certain temperatures. 

When the ink cools and is below its activation temperature, it will return to Black. When the ink is above 15C, it will be translucent.

Our thermochromic ink comes in 2 parts (slurry and binder) must be mixed 50/50 prior to use. Please let us know when you have placed an order so we can include the correct 2 part system.  You cannot use the Slurry without the binder and it will simply dry and fall off, the binder is what fixes the slurry to the substrate.

Apply thin coats. A single colour cannot be mixed or layered over each other.
