    The Colour-Therm range complies with all relevant standards, not least those defined by the REACH regulations. In addition, the Colour-Therm range comprises a choice of coatings and adhesive labels which alter colour when components reach a specific temperature. This is due to operational or environmental conditions. Moreover, this centres on a chemical change that occurs in the coating’s solid compound. The reaction occurs between 5°C and 360°C, depending upon the product.
