LuminoKrom luminescent marking is one of the 12 major French innovations according to INPI France
It is a reward for all of the doctors, engineers and chemical technicians of OliKrom who places innovation at the center of its strategy.
With the development of the luminokrom marking, the OliKrom company is part of the national effort to favor cycling as a mode of transport.
The challenge for the coming months will be to gradually perpetuate all of the temporary cycle paths while ensuring maximum safety, especially for night trips in dark areas.
LuminoKrom paint is easy to deposit, charges with light and lights up without any consumption of electricity or CO2 emissions. Many projects are underway in many cities in France and we will be happy to share the next achievements with you!
LuminoKrom paint, at the heart of innovation in the service of the environment
LuminoKrom® luminescent paint contributes to the emergence of tomorrow’s infrastructures which must be safer, more economical and more eco-responsible. This innovation has been labeled by the “Route du Futur” program of ADEME
LuminoKrom® marking exploits the natural phenomenon of photoluminescence. This physical process allows the paint to recharge indefinitely in daylight or artificial lighting without any fatigue.
LuminoKrom® innovation lies in having developed photoluminescent markings that are very resistant outdoors and capable of storing the surrounding light to emit a diffuse luminosity at night, visible for more than 10 hours. This patented innovation was developed within the R&D department of OliKrom. Several years of research and collaboration with the Eiffage Group were necessary to obtain a paint conforming to road use, combining coverage, colorimetry and chemical stability with optimal luminous performance in terms of intensity and duration.
