LumiLor: A coating that gives objects the ability to glow @ CES 2022

Saturday Jan 15, 2022 (00:07:53)


LumiLor is a breakthrough lighting solution that is revolutionizing the way we light our world. With its easy application and versatile design, the product makes it possible to create products that were difficult (if not impossible) to illuminate before. If you're looking for a safe, efficient, and elegant lighting solution, look no further than LumiLor.

What makes LumiLor unique?

One of the great benefits of LumiLor is that it is a very safe lighting solution. The light emitted from the coating is gentle and does not produce any heat. This makes it perfect for use in products where safety is a concern, such as children's toys or medical devices. With LumiLor, you can have peace of mind knowing that your product is safe and secure.

Another great benefit of LumiLor is its versatility. Because it can be applied to any surface, it opens up endless possibilities for creative lighting solutions. You can create intricate designs with luminescent borders or add subtle highlights to objects to make them stand out against a dark background. With this product, the only limit is your imagination.

Where can LumiLor be used?

This versatile product can be applied directly onto any object or surface where light is desired. It emits a very bright glow that makes it perfect for accentuating logos on retail products as well as creating glowing jewelry items like chokers and necklaces. LumiLor is also a great luminescent lighting solution for interior design and furniture.

You can even add luminescent designs to clothing, costumes, and fabric using LumiLor's innovative pre-applied film option. This makes it possible to create luminescent apparel that will light up any party! Because of the thickness, only 100 microns, adding luminescence to clothing and accessories won't add any bulk and nearly no additional weight.

One great example of how you can use the versatile product would be in ski goggles: attaching an adhesive layer onto your existing pair of ski goggles not only protects them from scratches but also allows you to easily attach custom graphics or logos onto them so they really stand out against other competitors on the slopes at nightfall. You could even apply the coating directly onto snowboards as long as you have a smooth, clean surface to adhere the luminescent coating onto.

But, you can add the company's luminescent coating to other outdoor sports items, such as bikes and accessories. Rather than having to add lights to your bike and helmet to use at night, LumiLor allows you to use your items as they are intended, with just the addition of the lighting film.

There are many more luminescent lighting applications for both interior and exterior design that you can explore. If there's an object or surface where luminescence is desired, LumiLor will work! Whether it be signage on vehicles, bar stools in your cafe/restaurant, cabinets in your kitchen & bathroom, or any other luminescent lighting application imaginable - LumiLor has a solution for every need.

Todd Cochrane (00:20)

So I'm gonna go ahead and let you go ahead and introduce yourself. And good morning. Welcome to the show.

Shawn Mastrian (00:25)

Well, thank you for having me. I'm really happy to be here. Shawn Mastrian and CEO of Darkside Scientific, the parent company of LumiLor. And what LumiLor is, it's the world's thinnest light. So we can actually apply light to the surface of any object without changing its form or function. And we can do it in 100-micron coating.

Todd Cochrane (00:45)

Wow. So So what is the typical, I guess, then? Sounds really impressive. What is the application then?

Shawn Mastrian (00:53)

So the applications, a lot of safety applications. First off, if you look at this helmet, for example, we actually used, we have a liquid applied coating that we can have, that we put on, see that the helmet itself around the three-dimensional curves, lights evenly and consistently throughout the object. And that's what we can do. We can create safety around this because we haven't modified this helmet in any other way. Putting a coating on the paint. We can also deploy it as a flexible applique too where we have the ability to light a-

Todd Cochrane (01:29)

-Hold it down just a little bit. There you go. Perfect.

Shawn Mastrian (01:31)

Yeah, so we have the ability to light a thin strip of light and then apply it to any product. So, from a consumer electronics standpoint, we're really looking at things with batteries in them. So e-bike is a large market. Just nighttime visibility, there are so many crashes that happened at night from lack of visibility. Such a simple application of our coding system that we can do it in artistic ways too. Because it is a liquid applied, a thin applied coating. You can do the different effects. You can do logo, etc. So from a safety standpoint, and also, you know, in fragmented marketplaces, you know, scooters, e-bike, etc., where there isn't, the markets kind of defining itself right now, this is something that could really help the consumers to be excited about the product and to differentiate your products.

Todd Cochrane (02:19)

So it looks to me like even in the sample that you have there that it potentially could be molded to the point where it's just a stick-on. Where it sticks on with you know, an adhesive right on the back, it's you know, double-sided adhesive or whatever it may be. This is really, I don't think I've seen anything like this before. Are you guys first in the market on this?

Shawn Mastrian (02:42)

Yes, we are definitely first in the market. We have two patents protected worldwide. Any liquid apply. And the same thing as we start off as a liquid-applied system, which is how we've got it to the right. But you can do as you were mentioning the sticker, this is actually a sticker that you can actually affix to any object. So

Todd Cochrane (02:58)

So are you limited then to a single color? Or can you mix and match? Or is it basically to have two different electrical runs? Or what's the palette look like?

Shawn Mastrian (03:10)

So we have a palette of eight different colors right now that we have available to us, which just happens that both of them are in the blue spectrum, but you can actually see how the top coating. You can actually put colors on top of it to alter it. Yep, so that purple color is actually the blue with a purple on top of it. Right? So can you can alter the colors. It's a single fixed color. Right now we are working on being able to dynamically change the colors on that. But the value proposition right now is a single color putting the light 100 microns worth of coating on a surface of an object that doesn't have to modify in order to make it emit light.

Todd Cochrane (03:44)

One thing that I found in my neighborhood, there's a girl that runs early in the morning. And in Michigan this time of year at that six and seven, it's still dark. And she does wear a reflective vest. But depending on which way she's coming at me, because it just seems like we crossed paths every morning, she runs the same times I'm driving on the street, sometimes I see are easier than others. So I just wonder, then from a reflective vest standpoint, if this blinking would help from a safety standpoint.

Shawn Mastrian (04:16)

Absolutely. And I kind of tell the same story. I was coming home from the gym one day and there was a lady that had a reflective vest, reflections on our bikes, front and rear lights. And it was all well and good except my headlights was facing this way. And she was facing this way. So I almost ran into her because I didn't see her if you have the ability to have side illumination and flashing because we're animals right respond to that sort of thing. So apparel is definitely a good market for us. And again, anything with batteries in it, where we're improving the safety, the visibility and the appearance of an object is it's good for us as

Todd Cochrane (04:50)

Well, I could see where some car guys might be excited about this too just, you know, put it on their vehicles and whatever type of application. So are you here just prototyping Where are you guys at in the stage of rollout and distribution execution of your product.

Shawn Mastrian (04:56)

So we have the ability to mass deploy this in a number of different form factors, we can mass deploy it and liquid applied coatings for millions of objects and mass paint applications, we can also sell the applications we were talking about earlier, to any market in hundreds of thousands or millions of those as well. So what we're really doing is we're looking for partners that are willing to innovate and to make their products more exciting using our lighting, mini coating technology.

Todd Cochrane (05:31)

This is really, really cool. So your goal here at CES is not necessarily direct to consumers, you're looking for brands to work with to apply this across their product line.

Shawn Mastrian (05:41)

That's correct. Looking for innovative brands that are looking to do something to delight their consumers.

Todd Cochrane (05:45)

Yeah. So I'm just wondering, then, I'm assuming just based on the kind of what I know, probably the power requirements is nothing on this, isn't it?

Shawn Mastrian (05:53)

Oh, exactly. But you can feel that there's no, there's no heat that's emitted on that. It's incredibly cool to touch, so we're not wasting a lot. So compared to LEDs, we're not as bright. But we don't have a lot of weight. A lot of thicknesses are removed, because you don't have to channel light, fuse it, etc. And from the power requirements standpoint, all your energy is really going into the emission of the light. So

Todd Cochrane (06:17)

It'd be fascinating to get this under a microscope.

Shawn Mastrian (06:21)

It's actually really cool under a microscope.

Todd Cochrane (06:23)

So yeah, so there you go, folks. LumiLor. Is that the correct way to pronounce it? Lumilor?

Shawn Mastrian (06:29)


Todd Cochrane (06:29)

Lumilor. Yes. And where should people go to find more information about this?

Shawn Mastrian (06:35)

There's two of us that are six, six, so we're easy to spot.

Todd Cochrane (06:38)

For the folks that are watching live or not here at CES is there a website

Shawn Mastrian (06:42) LUMILOR. There's full technical specifications on the product on our support page. Go to You can learn a lot about the product that way. And there's a contact form. Just tell us what you're interested in. And we'll be happy to work with you.

Todd Cochrane (06:57)

Outstanding. Well, thank you so very much for coming out and showing this product to us. It's really cool. I really see that you're going to have much success with this because I again, I don't think I've ever seen this type of application. So outstanding. Thank you, sir.

Shawn Mastrian (07:13)

Thank you for having us.
