If you want to experiment with hydrochromic materials, these smart sheets are a great introduction to the unique and modern applications for aqua!
Hydrochromic film changes colour when water is present on its surface. Starting out as white- when wet, it becomes translucent.
Instead of using screen printing ink to create a wet and reveal effect, SFXC hydrochromic film can take its place and create a very workable surface. These films will wipe clean and cut into any shape using a guillotine, craft knife or scissors.
In terms what surfaces you can cover with this film – it is an adhesive-backed flexible sheet so it will adhere to many materials; including most plastics, board, wood and some fabrics.
We stock sheets of adhesive hydrochromic film in various sizes. For application, these films are amazing to use if you want to reveal text and graphics. Other popular uses include marketing materials such as stickers, business cards, posters and packaging. These sheets are also brilliant for arts and crafts. For paper-based creations, this film could be added to make any event invitation truly memorable. This material will enchant and educate students, so bring your hydrochromic film along to a science fair or two!
