SpectraBurst Color Change Technology
Our unique line of SpectraBurst Color Changing plastics will allow for remarkable color changes when specifically selected temperature are reached. This new and exciting line of thermochromatic pigments can be activated with cold temperatures or with hot temperatures depending on your application. Imagine having a plastic component that changes from black to red when it gets too hot or an object that turns blue when it gets too cold? Our thermochromatic pigments offers these capabilities. All of our special effect resins are available in masterbatches or precolored compounds.
Our selection of color changing thermochromic pigments come and a wide array of colors as shown below. Since our thermochromatic products rely on temperature to change color, we can set them to react at standard temperatures such as 5, 10, 15, 18, 21, 25, 30, 33,37, 40 and 65 degrees celsius. Custom temperatures ranging from -20 to 110 degrees celsius are available as well (please inquire about custom temperatures).

Available Colors: 14 stock colors (custom colors available upon request)
