Liquid Crystal “Color-Change” Collection
- story by MaterialDistrict
Thermo-chromatic Liquid Crystal “color-changing” also known as “mood materials”, is based on the property of certain molecules moving when warmed. By this action, whether by touch or increasing ambient temperatures, visible color within the material is dramatically changed. These unique chemicals are encapsulates within the polyurethane polymer.
Technology used for fabrication: Depending on the end use and application, they incorporate their trade formula into polyurethane resin which is laminated to various substrates and final constructions.
