Screen printing, gravure, flexography. Thermochromic pigments have been designed and formulated for offset printing, and the technology spread to offset lithography. g. temperature indicators on mugs, beer bottles, and cans; labels that indicate adequate coldness; and labels on dairy products that indicate adequate storage conditions (Galagan and Su, 2008). In the sphere of security applications, thermochromic composites may be used for relatively simple verification of authenticity of documents or for preventing illegal photocopying via hidden messages that appear when the document is lit up or heated during photocopying.
