How Thermal Film Works

Thermal film appears as a contrast in color from its surroundings. Because the film reflects a cooler temperature in the scene it stands out from its warmer surroundings.

Always used with a thermal device, the high-contrast thermal film is attached to people, animals, vehicles, or even the landscape. Your thermal device will read the temperature of the scene around the film as warm. Although the film is not cold it appears cold. Therefore, because the film is cold, and the scene is warm, there is a contrast in color between them.

There are different palette settings on a thermal device. Most military and law enforcement agencies use the  “white hot” or “black hot”  settings. Therefore the contrast of the film will appear either black or white and various shades of gray. 

This passive film needs no illumination and will identify a subject or location through sand, smoke and fog.
