Liquid Crystal Thermochromic Colour Changing SheetSFXC
Liquid Crystal Thermochromic Sheets transform through a spectrum of colours at the touch of a hand . . .
Vibrant red, orange, green and blue colours appear when the sheet reaches the temperature of your chosen bandwidth.
SFXC Liquid Crystal Sheets are flexible with a semi-permanent adhesive backing, so they can be applied to most plastic and card substrates. They can be cut using scissors, cutting knife or guillotine.
What is Liquid Crystal?
Liquid Crystals are organic chemicals with a twisted helical molecular structure. These expand and contract as the temperature rises and falls. The colour change is reversible so it can be enjoyed over and over again!
Applications include engineering, heat mapping, education, arts and crafts, jewellery and interior design.
Using SFXC Liquid Crystal Sheets - a creative example
An artist called Andy O'Rourke used our Thermochromic LC sheets for his Snow Dog project. These 3D mascots are decorated by local artists. After being positioned around a town or city, locals and tourists are encouraged to hunt for each Snow Dog and take a photo to prove you've found it! After the event, each dog is auctioned of and the money is given to charity.
Andy chose Liquid Crystal Sheets with different activation temperatures so that his Snow Dog reacted to hot and cold temperatures (really handy for an outdoor installation!). He then cut and applied each piece to form beautiful patterns on his adorable Snow Dog.
See the video and images below of Andy's amazing work!
