Temperature Indicators

IntelimerĀ® polymers exhibit a sharp, tunable transition point from a crystalline to amorphous polymer. Landec can precisely control the temperature at which this transition occurs. Upon transition a reversible or irreversible change can take place indicating that a certain temperature has been reached. In addition to precisely controlling the switch temperature we can
also precisely control the molecular weight of the polymer resulting in a customized viscosity profile which can indicate cumulative time-temperature above the trigger point. The low cost polymer solution can be printed for easy assembly into a final device.
