Go Into the Light

Light years ahead of it’s time, Matsui harnessed the power of the sun to develop Photopia®, a patented color-changing material. In the presence of sunlight or ultraviolet light, the molecular structure of the color-sensitive material changes to a new color. Remove the light and presto, the material reverts back to it’s original or colorless state.

This illuminating and reversible process is available in Blue, Yellow or Purple. Many color to color combinations can be created by printing other colors underneath the Photopia colors-creating endless effects that can give any product an added dimension. It’s easy to see why Photopia® color-change technology inspires a new generation of bright ideas every day.
