This digital object has been developed in “Properties and new uses of materials for design” subject from the Design degree from EINA, University School of Design and Art (attached to the Autonomous University of Barcelona). The aim of the subject has been research about one material and then design a project in the Graphic Design and Visual Creation area where this material present a new use.

Thermo chromatic was been studied that is born from the interest of the group members to deepen in a relatively curious and interesting material. A material that is not easy to know for its little availability in the country.

They had to study their thermo sensitive properties to be able to work with the project as ingenious.The fact of this material could be applied in adhesives for packaging products such as beer, to determine if they were fresh or not, gave us an idea of how we wanted to focus the project.

We think we follow the model of the cans, but instead of freezing, we just want to apply action against the heat. A former student of EINA, already dealt with the issue in a project that looked Publication Publisher play with the appearance of the occult.

We decided to make a contribution to the product line ISDIN, to indicate that in certain temperature or alarm “appear” a graduation colored yellow to red passing through orange as the sun.

In short, we want the user realizes by the environment in which it is exposed, and taking into account the prevention solar for not having burns or more serious problems in the long run.
