LitCoat Revolutionizes The Painting Industry With Paramagnetic Electroluminescent Paint

Paramagnetic electroluminescent paint created by the brand LitCoat can be lit with a charge and used on bicycles, cars, models, and all other paintable surfaces.

The brand LitCoat has revolutionized the painting industry with paramagnetic electroluminescent paint, able to be used on cars, bicycles, and a vast array of other surfaces, and this is paint that can change color by simply bringing it into contact with an electric charge. The change which occurs when the paint is in contact with electricity and turns a different color is called electroluminescence, and electroluminescence also provides the surface with the ability to give off its own light.

A paramagnetic electroluminescent surface can change between many different colors depending on the charge it is receiving, and it all starts with a base coat of a material called ELfarbe. ELfarbe is completely environmentally friendly, and it can be thought of as a nanocomposite polymer binder system. ELfarbe is a tough film that makes for the perfect layering base, and this layering is a necessity when creating a paramagnetic electroluminescent surface area.

Paramagnetic paint is paint with the ability to simply change color when it is receiving electricity and this change is called electroluminescence.

This base can be painted on with a brush, and it works on a myriad of surfaces, including a simple piece of paper. As the material goes through a drying process, it bonds together to create a tough film through shrinkage, and this bonding process is what creates an ideal condition for electroluminescence.

The ELfarbe material is used in all painting layers when creating a paramagnetic electroluminescent effect using LitCoat, and this goes from the dielectric layer all the way to the electroluminescent layer. For the dielectric layer, ELfarbe is combined with barium titanate powder, the conductive layer is created by combining ELfarbe with the grapheme oxide or antimony-doped tin oxide, and the electroluminescent layer can be created using ELfarbe and a phosphoric pigment representing the color of a user’s choice.

ELfarbe is considered to be the ideal material in carrying electroluminescent paint layers, most easily allowing a user to create a desired paramagnetic effect. Because ELfarbe has no current or additional ingredients deemed to be hazardous to a user’s health or the environment, it is also considered to be a perfectly safe layering material.

Paramagnetic electroluminescent paint is within research and development on a nearly constant basis at this time, so while ELfarbe may be the go-to base coat material as of now, new and improved materials are constantly emerging. The method to create a paramagnetic surface representing more than one color is a simple one, and it follows a process of:

  1. Conductive layer - dielectric layer - EL layer (green) - conductive layer - protection layer
  2. Conductive layer - dielectric layer - EL layer (orange or blue) - conductive layer - protection layer

By following this layering process, a person will be able to paint their particular surface to show multiple colors of electroluminescent paint when it comes into contact with different charges.

Once the different paramagnetic layers are applied to a surface, a person can then charge the layers simultaneously or alone to achieve their desired color effect. The LitCoat formulated EL pigment is what provides the ability to create a multi-layered and multi-colored surface structure, and forming a particular paint layering combination will often take some trial and error on the behalf of the user. Because this is a highly skilled process that can become time consuming, the brand LitCoat recommends it is tried by painting professionals with an understanding of LitCoat and paramagnetic painting.

For those looking to get better acquainted with LitCoat and LitCoat’s paramagnetic painting, the brand offers a course on formulating and using their products which serves as an educational base to prepare for use. This thorough training course encompasses everything a user would need to know about the inner workings of the formula, how to craft the formula, how to apply the formula, and how to use the formula for maximum desired results.

The training course is composed of two separate files called The LitCoat Project as one, and a pre-requisite for the course is obtaining the LitCoat electroluminescent paint materials first. This course also goes on to explain the layered paramagnetic painting method and recommends using up to three colors at a single time out of the seven currently available. LitCoat also uses the course to explain the simplicity of LitCoat electroluminescent paint as well as its painting processes, suggesting that the product is marketable for all different methods of use.

One of the aspects that make the application of paramagnetic electroluminescent paint with LitCoat so simple is its ability to cover a surface using only a brush. Brushing on LitCoat can give the user the desired effect, particularly in cases of creative use. On top of regular brushing, airbrushing may also be used to provide the desired effect, and this is the method most often used on surfaces from automobiles to die-cast models. The paper example used on the LitCoat website to demonstrate the ease of application and ability to cover many surfaces is done using a simple regular brushing method.
