Read below to find out about the smart inks included in this pack:

Hydrochromic Ink loses its opacity when in contact with water. Hide messages, images, or colours. Once the Hydrochromic ink is applied to your chosen application it will appear to be white in colour. When water is applied to the finished article, the Hydrochromic ink will become translucent. This will reveal your hidden layer. This ink reverses back to its original state.

Thermochromic Ink is sensitive to changes in temperature. This product is perfect to hide a layer underneath: an image, colour or some secret text. When the Thermochromic ink is in contact with a heat source exceeding 27°C, the coating will become transparent, revealing your hidden layer. This temperature can be achieved by touch (with warm hands) as well as using heating equipment such as a hair dryer or radiator.

Photochromic Ink changes in the sun by introducing a dramatic appearance of colour. When applied to a surface this ink appears to be colourless. However, when the printed article is taken subjected to direct sunlight the colour will appear.

Super Glow in the Dark Ink In daylight, this product appears to be white in colour. It’s an amazing product, as you can ‘charge’ the ink for 10 minutes. This will allow it to emit a bright glow in darkness. This product can be many times.
