LitCoat the new electro paint from electroluminescent paint inventions.
We have received such a overwhelming response for electroluminescent paint or LitCoat and the information how to make it, that we have decided to provide such for USD 196.- and the electroluminescent coating specialist course in how to apply and wire it, the total guidance for $296.-
How to make it is in principle that you have to buy some base coat paint locally and disperse some additives within it. That is all, you do not have to make paint.
We have 2 websites, review electroluminescent paint is our blog where we discuss and review Paramagnetic paint and Electroluminescent paint.
LitCoat color wheel are the colors you can control with LitCoat.
As illustrated in this slider, electroluminescent paint or LitCoat paint layers works on electroluminescent principle or electroluminescence and is the result when EL phosphoric pigment dissolved in a carrier is sandwiched and electro powered between two conductive film layers or electrodes.
Recently there are many new awesome additives commercial available on the market: Awesome- Graphene Oxide (GO), Perfect- Indium Tin Oxide (ITO), Fantastic- Antimony-doped Tin Oxide or Smashing- Poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene)-poly(styrenesulfonate) (PEDOT:PSS). They are totally environment friendly and have a fantastic conductivity.
That it can have and show multilayer colors is simply done with with separate 3 sandwiched layers all in transparent coating, creating as per the RGB color wheel 7 sets of colors. The total layer thickness of LitCoat should be minimal 100 microns, each additional repeat of the sandwich structure is approx 60 microns.
The chemical engineered electro conductive additive component can have different variations. One of the main ingredients for the different layers is base coat component and is covering already 80% of the needed materials but needs to be mixed with different additives separately and later-on needs to be mixed again to function and differentiate the coating properties to power the phosphoric electroluminescence in the litcoat.
The first thing to understand in wiring conductive paint is how a circuit sees a piece of phosphoric material. It sees it as a capacitor.
LitCoat responds instantly to current. The Phosphor component is a copper-doped zinc sulfide phosphor and it only requires a 0.6 mA of current to charge one square to initiate the color change. As you know, Inverter works on any voltage 12v, 24v, 110v, 220v. The power sources are the same as those that drive EL wire and panels today.
The color range is simply done with some mixing of the EL phosphoric pigment aka glow in the dark pigment.
The base component, high solid, mixing machine based polyester acrylic paint is available in every specialized car paint store.
Are the additives expensive? Nothing out of the ordinary! Everything can be ordered from any paint supply store and your local paint-shop is equipped to mix it for you. The Topcoat is where you could use flakes, silver, pearl, metallic, diamond etc to achieve overall state of the art effect.
Roughly and as estimate if you would treat a subject according the LitCoat formulation the estimated costs are approx 2 times the cost you would have compared with a normal car paint job not that the ingredients are extraordinary expensive but because of the multilayer or multi component paint system.
Illustrated in the above image is the clear opaque single sandwiched layer paramagnetic LitCoat layer paint. The clear opaque or transparent basic provides that the other layers can shine or illuminate within the same or combined spectrum.
As chemical pigment specialist, I started developing color changing paint based on electroluminescent back in 2008 in Germany. At that time mainly to improve the electroluminescent spray-painting application vs the screen printing process.
You will find many articles covering the basics of the formulation is LitCoat, enabling you to judge and verify the integrity of the offer against USD 196.- Point is that for the USD 196, you will save a tenfold as it contains the original evaluated report in how I have done it, how it was prepared and reacting.
Why does it save a tenfold? Well, if you are going to make it, as I did your test batches and before you are getting it right, probably will cost you much more.
It is in PDF format, print it out and take it to your nearest auto body shop. They know what to do and you can have it customized. You can have it applied on anything you want, your car, helmet, motorbike, boat, computer casing, architectural signs and the list can go on.
LitCoat is the advanced electroluminescent paint formulation enabling you to enter this mind-boggling market opportunity with even something far more better regarding flexibility in application and appliance as compared to ELastoLite or lumilor to name a few.
LitCoat is by far more easier, cheaper and flexible when it comes to monetizing your skills. Below video shows some general background information on the subject. With LitCoat you simply can paint it
The LitCoat works as a busbar, a clear conductor, a phosphor layer (this emits the light), a dielectric, a rear electrode, and the urethane backing. The urethane coating is what makes LitCoat versatile.
It doesn’t matter where you are, New York, Rome, Amsterdam, Hongkong, Melborne, Berlin, Boston, Vancouver, Singapore or just any place, every auto body shop would be very willing to do it for you.
It goes without saying that once you are able to paint spray electroluminescent paint your opportunities are endless. Architectural signs thinking of how drastically the information could change that niche into a true revenue shaker.
LitCoat is truly implementing “green” technology for energy saving, as you have the ability working with natural materials and you have LitCoat literally as the “liquid light” as product and the money focus should be in that aria and this is by far more simple and within higher marketability reach.
LitCoat is providing this already. How about new swimming pool lightening? Electroluminescent lighting swimming pools, cheap to make, energy saving lightening for the swimming pool or car parks and the list can go on. LitCoat looks awesome and saves 90% energy and is providing even better light.
You easily can make the LitCoat Ultra High bright with carrier transport layers or two light-emitting layers.
Let us take for example we would apply LitCoat on 11 square feet (1.02 m2) can emit similar amount of light (lumens) as a standard 60-watt incandescent bulb.
LitCoat system is about 1/4 the efficiency of compact fluorescents (in lumens per watt)
Before ordering the LitCoat formulation, please read first “How to make electroluminescent paint” and all the associated articles as perhaps the information given is already sufficient for you.
After-all, innovation is about the application of better solutions that meet new requirements.
