New Itac coating
We are very pleased to announce that our ITS Reveal Technology coating has been granted a European patent. ITS Reveal is a unique coating which was developed at Itac’s laboratories in Manchester.
ITS Reveal will provide almost any textile with the ability to create a twenty-first-century litmus test. But, whereas litmus paper is fragile and for use in the laboratory ITS Reveal is highly durable and can be used on an industrial scale. Also, unlike litmus paper, which displays acid as red, ITS Reveal rapidly changes colour from green to fluorescent yellow, allowing it to be seen from a distance, providing an early warning sign of potential leaks and seepage.
ITS Reveal is part of our ITS-intelligent technical solutions, industry specific range of products. We are currently developing other formulas within the same family, which will reveal various types of toxic and hazardous seepage plus products which will react to entirely different types of stimuli – such as direct heat. These products are alerting manufacturers to the benefits of involving Itac from the outset, whenever they need to create an innovative intelligent textile.’
This film shows the colour change which occurs when acid comes into contact with a substrate coated with ITAC’s new ‘ITS Reveal’, thus revealing the presence of leaking acid within a short space of time.
We are currently developing an ITS Reveal Technology coating that can be activated by alkali liquids. For more information email: firstname.lastname@example.org
