Hydro Chromic White
- story by MaterialDistrict
Hydro Chromic White is a colour changing coating for use on textiles. Its effects are visible when it comes into contact with water. It comes as a white special binder made by Matsui and can be applied only to textiles that are not water repellent. The binder changes from white to transparent when wet and changes back to its original white colour when dried. The binder can be screen printed onto cotton, polyester, nylon and blended or nonwoven fabric. Because the binder is not elastic, so it can only be applied to non-stretch textile. The coating pigment is soft to the touch and also has excellent water resistance and rubbing fastness.
