The Advanced Guide to Electroluminescent car paint system, Lower cost, more el paint volume. LitCoat innovation is about the application of better solutions that meet new requirements.
LitCoat functional mechanism is interconnecting three-dimensional networks of particles to form a network of electronic conductors, the networks (power remittance layers) provide a pathway for the flow of electrons to engage the Electroluminescence within the coating.
Sounds technical right? Well, it is just a matter of spraying it correctly and we recommend using single action airbrush or HVLP equipment. It perfectly atomizes the LitCoat electroluminescent paint layers for LitCoat 1 – LitCoat 2 – LitCoat 3 and LitCoat 4 paint layers. On fabric you can screen print the EL paint layer system.
Did you know that with “each” 32oz “EL” or “Polarization” pigment you make 5 liters paint and dilute with solvent 2:1 that it gives 7.5 liter spray-able material. As guidance: 1 liter paint is good for 5-7 squire meter (depends on variables as your over-spray, film thickness, layers etc) Go for the: Royal King Bundle
For the Royal King Bundle – Electroluminescent paint system real cost guidance – (The figure mentioned is just a rough estimate)
5 liter = 30m² = 322ft² = US$2998 /46368in² = $0.07/in² – there are 4 layers needed = $0.28/in² -(28 US dollar cents per square inch)
LitCoat 1 – Power remittance layer.
LitCoat 2 – Isolates the 2 power remittance layers. in powder form, simply mix in acrylic binder/medium or clear coat.
LitCoat 3 – LitCoat color layer. in powder form, simply mix in acrylic binder/medium or clear coat.
LitCoat 4 – Power remittance layer transparent.
It is not complicated and the basics are just 3 paints (2 layer are conductive and one is transparent and conductive) as the LitCoat 1 paint and the LitCoat 4 paint is used to sandwich the LitCoat 2 and LitCoat 3 paint layer.
The airbrush next to the HVLP sprayer are the most perfect tools for the conformal coating application for the different EL car paint layers. EL polymer system can be applied to fabric and clothing, for example, Vinyl is often used. You can use the inks that you have for screen printing and mix it with the materials offered with our 1 gallon EL package.
LitCoat is taking away the limitation in the electro luminescent car paint system application method, as it is environment friendly and “NON hazardous” , it is aqueous based. (An aqueous solution is a solution in which the solvent is water. ).
Being “NON hazardous” is a huge advantage for the litcoat application.
(this is because harsh solvent based EL paints involve harmful solvents and hazardous chemicals during the application and cleanup process.)
Use LC1 to sculpture your shape of your creation!
The first conductive layer is best to be used to initiate what should be lighted-up vs not-lighted up, to sculpture as true artist your artistic creation. Use airbrush stencils, flame, skulls, cars or whatever you like. Make sure all lit fields or strips are connected or use alternatively several connection points. This is the art!

What is electroluminescent (EL) paint?
Paint that glows when electricity is applied. Electro luminescent coating is a car paint that lights up, a system of paint layers if applied correctly can be turned-on or off.
The EL paint application is a multi-layer system which uses different kinds of materials in order to get it Lit. LitCoat™ light intensity can go from mild to wild and is setting new standards being the real leader in the automotive aftermarket.

The sequence is from principle always the same:
(1) power remittance layer.
(2) Isolator layer.
(3) LitCoat Pigment 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.
Can electroluminescent paint be homemade?
Yes LitCoat can be made at home, actually we prefer that you buy our EL packages we know for a fact that every painter like to use his own paint for the best results. For further inquiries please contact us or visit our LitCoat shop . The packages are provided with a full guidance how to make electro luminescent paint. The additives simply need to be mixed in your own clear coat paint and provides much more EL paint to play with. Affordable electroluminescence science for everyone!
What Inverters are used for the LitCoat car paint?
DC9V – 19V 2.5W EL inverters are the mostly used EL inverters.
Start your own business and sell your own EL paint. No restrictions.
