World's leading producer of Colour Change Temperature Indicating Graphic Devices & Materials
Due to a change notification we have received from our supplier, we are hereby informing you that there will be a change to the release liner used on the adhesive of our standard Liquid Crystal products.
We have already undertaken tests of the new release liner and found no change to the performance of the strips, with the only difference being a slight change to the colour shade of the release liner. There will be no change to the adhesive used.
This change will be a gradual process and you will start to see this change over the next 12 month period, whilst we use current stocks and replace them with this new liner.
If you have any queries regarding this notice, please do not hesitate to contact our customer support team.
Thermax® Labels used on race brake calipers
Whilst the car is racing and trying to reach maximum pace the brakes are often applied hard, at this the time the friction of the pads against the rotating discs transfers heat to the calipers
If the temperature reaches 250°C the brake fluid may lose its non-compression status causing brake fade. If this happens the brake fluid should be replaced at the next pit stip.
The calliper is an ideal place for the Thermax® labels as it provides a clear view of the brake fluid temperature.
Thermax® labels used on engine cam covers - Race prepared engines
Whilst working at maximum performance, the top half of the engine still has to be kept within safe working limits or damage may occur.
Water movies around the engine to cool the components however this can reach boiling temperatures.
Thermax® labels can be used to record the water temperature being achieved whilst in motion giving a quick reference for the mechanics when the car is at its pit-stop.
These labels can be used on radiator and cylinder heads.
Thermax® labels used on shock absorbers - Competition shock absorbers on rear axle
Modified exhaust pipes, especially on turbo charged cars, produce much hotter air that can overheat the nearest shock absorber.
This can affect the vehicles handling and reduce up to one quarter of the cars suspension stability.
Placing Thermax® labels on the lower casing will give a clear indication if this is happening during a race.

If your regular fan of the BBC's Watchdog, then on 24th September 2009 you would have seen our TDI Label in action
(product appears 04.02/13.58, drag playhead).
This particular segment concerned visitors staying at the Holiday Village who where becoming seriously ill.
The hotel, on appearance was spotless and all the right hygiene processes in the kitchens appeared to be in place.
However hygiene expert Dr Lisa Ackerly found that the hotels cleaning appliances weren't reaching the recommended temperature to kill bacteria.
To prove her theory, the team used TDI 6 Level 60°C - 82°C to determine whether the water reached a hot enough temperature to ensure bacteria being killed.
Thermax® is our successful range of Irreversible temperature indicators available over a range of -17°C to +1270°C (+1°F to +2318°F) which are used in numerous applications such as Food, Medical, Automotive, Aerospace and Engineering.
Specialist Clothing and Footwear, Electronics and components are other examples where knowing the temperature is imperative, but difficult to measure in any other way than by the use of a flat graphic display.
We offer an extensive portfolio of standard products supplemented by a full custom manufacturing service. Many customers approach us to develop ideas and they often come along with their own ideas so we are constantly creating innovations through our dedicated staff and R&D unit.
