Thermochromic Screen Printing Ink:

Colourless when exposed to hot temperature, and coloured when exposed to cold temperature: the thermochromic colour change is induced by an external heat source and occurs when the target temperature is getting near. The thermochromic ink then becomes more and more transparent.

On the contrary, the farther away from the referred temperature, the more it becomes colourful and has covering power.

The colour change is fully reversible and immediate.
The colour change factor is the temperature, which can be induced for example with water, air or touch.
