APS Elastomers Now Offers Thermochromatic Pigment for TPU

Press release date: Mar 06, 2017

Romulus, MI (March 6, 2017) Thermochromatic pigments for TPU is now available at APS Elastomers. Thermochromatic pigment reacts to changes in temperature and can be TPU overmolded in applications where monitoring heat energy is beneficial - and in some cases, crucial. As the temperature rises, the pigment loses its color; making it ideal for applications such as baby bottles, thermoses, and coffee mugs to prevent scalding; fever patches to detect body temperature; and battery testers to detect energy levels.

The thermochromatic pigments are available in a broad range of colors that are FDA, RoHS, and NSF compliant and heavy-metal free.
