Hydrochromic White

What is Hyrdrochromic White?

Hydrochromic White is a water-based binder to be used for Screen Printing onto cotton, polyester, nylon, other blended fabric or nonwoven fabric.


Hydrochromic White changes repeatedly from white to nearly transparent when wetted with water and changes back to the original white when dried. Therefore, having some image underneath and over-printing Hydro Chromic White on top, you may have a special effect that hides the image with white when dried and shows the image when wetted.

Also, the coating is soft to the touch and excellent in water resistance and rubbing strength so the binder is suitable for toys such as a diaper of a baby doll.

Furthermore, you may add Neo Color (our pigment color) into the binder to obtain reversible color change from colored opaque to colored transparent with water, which can increase the hiding power of the preprinted design.
