How Thermal Film Works


Thermal film projects an image different or contrasting from its surroundings because it reflects a cooler temperature in the scene.

Used in conjunction with a FLIR device, the high contrast thermal film is attached to people, animals, vehicles, or even the landscape. The FLIR device will read the temperature of the scene around the film which always appears warmer. Therefore the thermal film pops.

There are different settings on a FLIR 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.   

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