Thermochromic Pigments
 
Pigments that change colour at 31 degrees C. The reversible colour change can take place an unlimited number of times. Five pigments are available.
The first colour in each pigment name is the colour below 31oC.
The second colour in each pigment name is the colour above 31oC.
A fast, effective colour change takes place. 
When the colour name indicates that the pigments turn transparent or translucent, a pile or thick film of pigment will appear white or coloured while thin films or low pigment concentration will be transparent or translucent. 
 
Applications
Put into various epoxy & polyester resins and into oil & solvent based mediums to make items or displays that change colour depending on temperature.
These pigments stir easily into resins but may require a good bit of mixing to get a uniform spread in some mediums that you put them in.
Widely used in nail varnish products (approved for this type of cosmetic product). 
Not easy to use in water-based mediums and recommended for such mediums. These pigments are highly hydrophobic (don't like water).
These pigments have not been approved for cosmetic applications other than nail varnish products.
