To promote better adhesion and shielding of the microcapsules it may be necessary to increase the amount of ‘binder’ in thermochromic ink formulation. However, this has been found to significantly influence the coloration of the thermochromic substrate. The author has researched the difference in the reflectance curves obtained 46 Advances in Smart Medical Textiles from printed thermochromic composites at various concentrations of acrylate adhesives, where it had been found that higher concentrations of the acrylate-based adhesive influence the loss of reflectance minimum at 410 nm, which causes a hypsochromic shift.
