Red Warning / Material application

Red Warning
Red Warning

As research indicated that each year many people get scalded by the exhaust pipes, the question still has not been improved since there is no clear warning on the exhaust pipe to make people alert and stay away from the locomotive exhaust pipe. After discussion, we devise the identifiabile exhaust pipe, painted with a discoloring warning paint, that will show red color when it is heated.
Function: Exhaust pipe shows blue color when it is cooling. After a locomotive is started, the exhaust pipe is heated and the its color will become red gradually, which can alert people to stay away from it.
