We no longer support the 1st dim generation, it is all about the awesome 2nd generation! Step away from the dull and dim EL 4 layer paint system and start with the awesome 2nd generation that consist of 5 layer EL paint system.
Our products are 100% water based. The brightness of our products is three times higher when compared to others at the same drive voltage. Electroluminescent Illuminated Color Changing Paint System for Decorative uses. As a matter of fact, our product runs at slightly lower voltage with as result increased half-life when compared to others. Obviously, color and brightness can vary based on inverter and the driving field of light.
The sequence is from principle always the same:
(1) LitCoat power remittance layer.
(2) LitCoat Isolator layer.
(3) LitCoat Pigment layer.
(3.5) LitCoat Anchor layer
(4) LitCoat power remittance layer.
(5) Sealing clear coat – (use your own clear coat or airbrushing, tinted clear coats, colored top coats, hydro-graphics, etc.) to create special artistic effects.
From principle it is actually simple to apply. You will need to develop your own feeling for it as it needs practice to get your handle on it. Do not waste money on expensive “classes” as it is better to buy materials instead and use our free guidance’s that comes with the products and support.
Science – The Electroluminescent paint system is a parallel-layer ‘lossy capacitor’ an active electroluminescent pigment is embedded in dielectric.
Application of an AC voltage to both conductive layers generates a changing field within the active layer, this causes the litcoat pigment to emit light.
The EL lamp is constructed from various layers of HVLP spray painted Polymer Thick Film coating compositions. Litcoat EL paint users are developing ever more creative ways to capitalize on its unique qualities.
The first powder electroluminescent pigment was introduced in 1930 by Mr. Destriau a French scientist in Magnetism and Dosimetry . He was the first who came up with the word “electroluminescence”, as a reference to the phenomenon he observed in 1936. He called it the Lossew light after a Russian scientist Oleg Losev. Losev who invented the first light-emitting diode (LED). He did the first research on them and proposed the first correct theory of how they worked. He later used them in practical applications such as electroluminescence.
After the invention the electroluminescence effect wasn’t heard off anymore until the 60’s when the inventions where used to make products which we still use today.
The science of Electroluminescent paint
Electroluminescence science (EL) is an optical phenomenon and electrical phenomenon. The material in this optical phenomenon emits light. In response to the passage of an electric current or to a strong electric field. Electroluminescence is the production of visible light by a substance exposed to an electric field without thermal energy generation.
An EL coating sytem requires 60-250V AC, and frequency range from 50-1000Hz.
Typical Operating Voltage 100-120V AC RMS, recommended for most applications.
