Hayashi Chemical Industries Co. Ltd. is a major Japanese manufacturer of products for printing, represented in Europe by FOR.TEX.
The VARIOTERM pigments are made from special heat-sensitive substances which have the property of appearing colored below a certain temperature and become colorless above the same temperature. The thermochromic substances constituting the VARIOTERM dyes are contained in spherical microcapsules insoluble in water. The commercial physical form of the VARIOTERM dyes is therefore constituted by a paste, in the aqueous phase, formed by the dispersion of these microcapsules.
The following colors are available:
- GOLDEN ORANGE
Printing paste with swelling effect very resistant to maintenance.
Printing paste for “Stardust” effect, available in different colors.
