Darkside Scientific and Airbus create electroluminiscent exterior markings for aircraft

’LumiLor’ is the world`s first and only patented electroluminescent paint. The product allows manufacturers to design with light in ways previously impossible. It produces a single-color light that is visible at long distances and shines through many types of atmospheric conditions such as fog, snow and smoke. Unlike many light sources such as LEDs, the brightness of the paint is distributed across the coating and appears the same from all angles of view. Simply put, anything you paint with ‘LumiLor’ can be turned on and off as easy as a light bulb. Researchers at Darkside Scientific have perfected the formula to withstand the harsh elements of jet travel.

Airbus Innovation leaders say they’re impressed with the technology behind ’LumiLor’ and see promising possibilities for the future. “This is an exciting new product that can turn surfaces into functional elements in an unconventional way,” said Vincent Loubiere, lead technologist at Airbus.
