Black Thermochromatic Pigment
Properties of the COM-11558 Black Thermochromatic Pigment
What is a thermochromatic pigment? It’s a powder composed of dyes, salts, and weak acids micro-encapsulated in polymer that can be mixed with all kinds of substances such as paint, glue, or even more innovative materials like Sugru or Polymorph.
Once heated, and as its name suggests, this pigment changes colour – in this case it turns from black to a lighter colour when it reaches 33 °C, simply hold the bag a few minutes in your hands and you’ll see for yourself!
Beware, however, of exposing the pigment to temperatures exceeding 200 °C as this can damage the dye.
