OliKrom develop smart paint and ink

Jean-François Letard, president of OliKrom presents the company he founded in 2014. This CNRS researcher has developed and patented a type of smart paint and ink that changes color, depending on temperature, light or air with the aim of alerting industrialists to an anomaly.

Its more than one hundred customers are international groups, notably those of the CAC 40. Its flagship product, developed in partnership with Eiffage, is Luminochrome paint, which is used on poorly lit roads and sidewalks to make them luminescent.

The next step for OliKrom will be an international deployment and the creation of a distribution network. Eventually, a stock market listing is even envisaged.
