BASF has developed a thermo-opaque, transparent thermoplastic that turns opaque as the temperature changes. Thermochrome polymers are materials that change colour if thetemperature changes.

BASF innovates by developing a "ThermoShift" range of intelligentmaterials whose transparency alters as the temperature decreases orincreases. Opaque materials are transparent and opaque again within atemperature range of 20 ° C to +90 ° C. The maximum transparanty iswithin a temperatuurvork of 5-10 ° C. These parameters are adaptable.
