Color-Changed Wire / Electrical cord

Color-Changed Wire
Color-Changed Wire

In urban areas, faulty wiring accounts for 33%
of residential electrical fires. With the wires coated
with heat-sensed thermo chromic material we can
easily avoid this kind of danger.

The skin of the wire changes as the temperature
starts to rise, especially when wrapping the wire
together there is a great possibility of getting over-
heat. So as the color turn red we can straightly be
alarmed and next time we wouldn’t put them in the
same way again.
