and photochromic masterbatch from UK-based LCR Hallcrest is a temperature sensitive masterbatch which changes colour as its temperature changes, or when it is exposed to UV light.
The major growth areas are electrochromic coatings and self-cleaning coatings with thermochromic
coatings will provide somewhat moderate growth opportunities for material suppliers.
The First Household Battery Tester is an ideal opportunity to combine thermochromics
and printed electronics, and the expertise that LCR Hallcrest brings to the thermographics field is very much on display throughout the process.
, which change color due to temperature fluctuations, have always been popular, and now Sun Chemical has easier-to-print versions.
Kalkowski has noticed some design trends, citing increased use of metallics, foils and specialty inks like thermochromics
SICPA also has a number of thermochromics
, invisible fluorescents, solvent sensitive inks and machine-readable inks (taggants).
Beer companies use specialty products to promote new beers or to re-launch an existing beer, like thermochromics
to tell you that the beer is cold," says Buystedt.
Special-effects colors include metallics, pearlescents, phosphorescents and thermochromics
We are looking for inks that are reactive to different environments, such as thermochromics
, as well as looking into RFID," Mr.
PRODUCTS / SERVICES: Solvent and waterbase inks optimized for flexo and gravure applications; SICURA UV inks for flexo, offset, screen, letterpress and waterless; and specialty inks including metallics, thermochromics
, photochromics, pearlescents, and phosphorescents.
This our first major push in thermochromics
in the U.
NorthStar uses water-based and UV flexo, solvent-based gravure and specialty inks, such as fluorescents and thermochromics
