Your partner for the development of novel chromogenic polymeric materials

 

International unique complete supply chain from the development of chromogenic materials:

Dye molecule → thermochromic composite →  protection technology → extrusion / polymer melt → thermochromic final products

 

Thermochromic

Development of thermochromic pigments

 

Development of new thermochromic materials

  • sun protection
  • films with reversible and irreversible circuit
  • thermosets
  • elastomers

 

Photochromic

Development of new photochromic materials for

  • sun protection
