Glossary of Printing Terms:
Thermochromic Printing Inks

Inks that change color or disappear completely as the temperature changes, including as a result of brief exposure to body heat.

Such inks are used to protect documents against forgery, and as temperature indicators for drinks and medicines, as well as for the monitoring of heating and cooling units.

Another application is the indication of potential damage to heat-sensitive products, since certain thermochromic printing inks change color permanently at certain temperatures.
