Colour Change Crayon Behaviour

When applied to pre-heated surfaces, if colour change takes place:

(a) within 1-2 seconds, the temperature is within +/- 5ºC of its rating

(b) instantly, the temperature is higher than its rating

(c) after two seconds, the temperature is lower than its rating

Accuracy: +/-5ºC
