The application possibility of thermochromic dyes is greatly affected by resiliency to electromagnetic irradiation. Oda investigated the influence of different stabilisers, UV absorbers with Smart dyes for medical textiles 41 pertaining amphoteric counter-ion, which promote the electrical neutrality of the photochromic compound (Oda, 2008a,b). The dependency of colouristic parameters on temperature of printing inks for paper was investigated by Kulcar et al. (2010). Organic thermochromic composites are used to develop features that directly influence the safety and comfort of the user, and the products obtained by definition belong to the group of high added value products.

4. 5. Spiropyrans (spiroindolinobenzopyrans) Spironaphtoxazines Naphtopyrans (chromenes) Fulgides Diarylethenes In terms of their applicability to textile fibres, spiropyrans, spironaphtoxazines, and chromenes have been found the most suitable considering fatigue, lifetime, and fastness properties. , 2011). 2 Methods and instruments for the analysis of photochromic medical textiles Recording the colour of materials that do not display it before quite specific criteria are met implies that the standardised spectrophotometers have to be upgraded or coupled with, in the case of photochromic materials, a source of ultraviolet irradiation.

The measurement process is different depending on the type of the spectrophotometer used. When coupled with a stand-alone spectrophotometer, the sample is exposed to UV and then carried to the aperture of the spectrophotometer. e. the time needed to fit the sample against the aperture of the spectrophotometer is hardly ever the same and comparable. However, when the colour measurement is done by a portable spectrophotometer, the chamber door is simply open, and the spectrophotometer is simply pressed against the surface of the sample, thus triggering the measurement.
