Irreversible Temperature Labels

Sharply defined melting points of a purified organic chemical provide unique, high precision temperature sensitive phase change indicators with color change effects. Each temperature element uses a different chemical compound and is made separately by applying a coating containing the chemical to a special absorptive paper substrate. When the rated temperature is exceeded, the chemical melts and is absorbed by the substrate, causing a permanent color change to black.

Offering precise readings, these irreversible temperature labels combine:

  • Defined melting points– Giving high accuracy with the ability for you to specify exact requirements based on your needs
  • Individually Coated– Allowing you to design your label giving you accurate and clearly defined results
  • Permanent Color Change– Allowing you to keep records for quality control and due diligence or records abuse of your products in the field



  • Process Control – Giving you consistent results
  • Test & Measurement – Delivering accurate results
  • Quality Control– An affordable solution to safeguard quality
  • Safety Indicators– Protecting people, equipment, machinery, and products
  • Warranty – Removing the risk of false claims
  • Maintenance – Reducing downtime and maximizing performance
