Mascheranhas gives an in-depth review of the research in the field of thermochromics (Mascheranhas, 2007). Problems associated with fastness properties of thermochromic composites remain to limit a wide range of application possibilities, and at the forefront of the most important issues to be dealt with is poor fastness to UV irradiation, which excludes long-term exposure to daylight and direct sunlight, thus limiting the products for indoor use only. It was also found that temperature directly influences the properties of organic thermochromic pigments, and therefore they should be shielded from undesirable sources of heat.
