A range of screen inks available in three colours: red, blue and yellow. Prints produced using these inks will change from colourless to coloured when exposed to UV or Sunlight. They can be supplied in several ink types for plastic, metal, and paper. This product is available in standard and a long afterglow version.


Also known as Glow in the Dark, these screen inks contain optically active pigments which absorb energy from incident light and re-emits it as light, after the incident light is removed. The length of time for which this is visible depends on the ink type, and previous exposure time. Three main types of phosphorescent inks are available; Standard long afterglow yellow/green, Extra long afterglow yellow/green, and Quick charge long afterglow yellow/green. Standard long afterglow inks can also be produced to special order in Orange, Yellow, and Blue/Green. Designed to print on most plastics and paper.


These inks contain heat sensitive pigments which absorb heat from their surroundings or directly applied heat which causes the temperature to rise and a chemical change to occur in the ink. The ink which is coloured then changes to colourless. On cooling the ink will return to its coloured state. Available over a range of temperatures and in various colours.
