MyCol has received a grant under EUROSTARS call for proposals for the project "T-Heat: Temperature sensitive prints for quality monitoring in manufacturing industry”. Together with the Bern University of Applied Sciences from Switzerland, we will pursue the aim of the project, which is to develop printing inks that permanently colour upon heating over a predetermined temperature (in the 60 - 200°C region). The products will be used as indicators i.e. labels or markings, to control desired temperatures and will be ready for the market after the project. Innovation element of the project is the ink, used to print suitable markings, which colour permanently within narrow tolerance range at predefined activation temperature. Level of technological development is up to TRL = 8. Project will start from 1st of October 2020 and the duration is 24 months.
