Thermochromics change colors as they cool. 40% of consumers complain about being served a beverage that’s too warm. Thermochromic technology is great for ensuring an ice-cold beverage experience for each consumer.
We’re an Innovation Company
CTI is an innovator that helps grow and differentiate brands through photochromic and thermochromic inks for printing on labels and packaging.
CTI is committed to improving lives through chemistry that alerts, protects and surprises.
Photochromics are color changing inks that activate when exposed to sunlight. This technology is great for creating theater-in-the-hand experiences for consumers. Sunlight-activated features are one way your brand can own the summer or outdoor-usage occasions. Photochromic inks are also great for creating content and stories for Millennials to share on social media.
Reveal technology hides the message when a product is warm or cold: it’s only after the chilled beverage is consumed that the message or code is revealed. CTI's reveal technology is one way for your brand to surprise and delight consumers. Call to learn more about these color changing inks for labels, cans, and cups!
Glow-in-the-Dark (GID) Inks absorb light, enabling them to continue to glow when the lights are turned off. Using GID is a great way to ramp up your Halloween and other holiday promotions. Also, don't forget that kids love for things to Glow-in-the-Dark year-round.
Products and packaging with photochromic, glow-in-the-dark, and thermochromic ink printing features enhance consumer experiences and drive purchasing decisions.
