Tribochromism



Tribochromism refers to a change in colour of a material caused by mechanical friction.

Additional recommended knowledge

Tribochromatic materials are used when friction has to be detected. These materials generally change colour under mechanical stress conditions and then the colour gradually fades once the stress is removed.
