Photoluminescent road marking
to make night-time mobility safer
LuminoKrom Photoluminescent Paint
LuminoKrom, the high performance luminescent marking
LuminoKrom® photoluminescent road paint was developed by the company OliKrom located in Pessac (33), France. LuminoKrom® luminous paint harnesses renewable energy from solar radiation. It captures light during the day and lights up at night without any consumption of electricity or CO2 emissions.
This patented innovation was developed within the R&D department of OliKrom. Four years were needed to obtain a paint conforming to professional use with optimal luminous performance (in intensity and duration) to ensure visibility throughout the night (+10 hours).
In 2018, LuminoKrom® photoluminescent paint was successfully applied on a cycle path. In 2019, this innovation in the field of road infrastructure was labeled by the Comité d’Innovation Routes et Rues and in 2020, the luminescent LuminoKrom® marking was nominated for the Prix Innovation de la Sécurité Routière.
LuminoKrom® photoluminescent markings are now widely deployed in France to secure cycling facilities and pedestrian paths. In 2020, LuminoKrom® markings began to seduce beyond our borders, notably with the first projects in Belgium.
