Thermostar is a line of temperature sensitive (thermochromic) finished inks. Thermostar is formulated using ChromaZone pigments and utilises TMC’s latest printing ink techniques.
The ink colour on a printed item disappears as the temperature rises above the response temperature of the thermochromic ink and then it reverses back to its original colour as the temperature is reduced again (below the response temperature). Thermostar can be featured in a variety of applications including high end promotional items, advertising, labels, packaging, security documents, textiles, toys, novelties.
Inks based on ChromaZone can be applied to print on products such as labels, publications, packaging and textiles. ChromaZone can also be formulated into coatings for application on many surfaces such as plastics, ceramics, glassware and metal.
