Thermochromic

Chameleon® Thermochromic Masterbatch is temperature sensitive and changes colour as its temperature changes.

There are two variants

Becoming a lighter colour as the temperature rises and reversing back to the original darker colour as the temperature cools below the activation temperature point.

Becoming a darker colour as the temperature is cooled and reversing back to the original lighter colour when the temperature is raised above its activation temperature point.

Colour to colour, colour to translucent and translucent to colour are available.

We can produce special colours to order and any activation temperature from -15°C to +70°C

Some masterbatches are held in stock, such as for moulded baby safety products, for cold drinks and for body temperature activation.

For injection moulding or extrusion.

Suitable for dosing into many polymers such as PP  PE  HDPE TPE  TPU PU  EVA  HIPS  PVC

BPA Free available & Phthalate Free

Phosphorescent

Chameleon® Phosphorescent Masterbatch has been specially manufactured for injection moulding and extrusion and can be added to many types of standard plastic materials with ease to create  ‘Glow in the Dark’ products for fun or safety purposes.

Phosphors radiate visible light after being energized and require exposure to light for a while before they will glow in the dark. Phosphors then slowly release their stored energy over time. As they release the energy, they emit small amounts of light, which we see as an object glowing.

Used in the production of Toys, Bangles, Wristbands, Spoons, Shot Glasses, Bottles, Barware, Jewellery, Headwear, Pet Collars, Signs, Keyrings and much more ‘Phosphorescent’ MB can enhance and illuminate many moulded products.

BPA Free & Phthalate Free

Neutral pellets which when moulded and activated change to a vibrant yellowy green glow. The masterbatch is compatible with numerous plastic materials (PP, PE, PS, PET, TPE, TPU, PVC,HIPS.HDPE).
