How does LuminoKrom® paint work?
LuminoKrom® technology exploits the natural phenomenon of photoluminescence and the renewable energy of solar radiation. This physical process allows the paint to be recharged indefinitely by daylight or artificial lighting without any fatigue.
Thus, the paint captures and stores the surrounding light during the day and releases it at night in the form of diffuse luminosity for ten hours, without consuming electricity or emitting CO2.
LuminoKrom®, an OliKrom Inside technology
LuminoKrom® is a unique and patented French innovation developed by the company OliKrom. The products are manufactured in the Pessac factory (Gironde – 33).
Four years of research and collaboration with the Eiffage Group were necessary to obtain a photoluminescent paint suitable for road use, which captures and stores light in all weathers and is resistant to bad weather.Learn more
Unique expertise for the city of tomorrow
In 2018, LuminoKrom® photoluminescent paint was successfully applied in horizontal signage on a first bicycle path. In 2019, this innovation in the field of road infrastructure is approved by the Roads and Streets Innovation Committee. In 2020, LuminoKrom® luminous marking is nominated for the Road Safety Innovation Award.
LuminoKrom® photoluminescent markings are now widely deployed in France to make cycling and pedestrian paths safer. Since 2020, LuminoKrom® markings have been exported beyond our borders with the first projects in Belgium, Canada, Nigeria, Switzerland, etc.
