Moulinage du Solier innovates by creating a thermochromic thread
The new thread TRY ((Thermo Reactive Yarn) is a synthesis of technologies: threads that change color when are heated or cooled to a given temperature.
For example, a originaly purple thread, will turn red at 30°C (86 °F), then white at 50°C (122°F). When the thread cools down, it returns to its original color.
According to applications, it is possible to choose up to two reactive temperatures, from -20° (68°F) to 70°C (158°F) and the original colors (among the primary colors).
Currently, the threads are made with polyester (continuous filaments, 170 dtex), but trials are in progress on other subjects such as cotton.
This new thread finds its application in all sectors of activities: decoration, building, personal protective equipment, electrical protection…
Besides its playful and aesthetic qualities, it constitutes a real warning system.
