NJIT’s polydiacetylenes (PDA’s) paints can be either spray-painted or inkjet-printed on metals, plastics, polymers or paper. These tailorable and robust PDA paints are capable of either fast or slow time-dependent chromatic reversibility. First developed as coatings for environmental monitoring, they are being extended to stress/shock and chemical monitoring applications.
