OliKrom customizes smart pigments, and makes paints, inks and master batches.

OliKrom accompanies manufacturers throughout their feasibility study (proof of concept), Research and Development (mid and long-term) and pre-industrial phasing (assistance with validation tests, prototyping etc.). Following these phases, OliKrom produces paints, inks or master batches by the litre, kilo or tonne. Our team of experts is on hand with expert advice, quality control or training, to integrate smart materials into your industry.
