Welcome to OliKrom, your expert in color intelligence


OliKrom is a major player in the field of Intelligence of Color for Industrial Safety.

OliKrom®  pigments are the result of patented technology. It is a new generation of pigments with Thermochromic, Photochromic and Piezochromic properties. Olikrom assists industrials throughout the entire technological process, from the conception, to the production and the integration of smart pigments.
Piezochromic inks, pigments & paints

To create piezochromic coatings and materials, that change color under pressure (shock, impact, strain), OliKrom relies on 2 patented technologies : Color change at a given pressure and color recovery when the constraint decreases. ...

Photoluminescent pigments : custom fluorescent & phosphorescent paints and inks

OliKrom holds a unique expertise in photochemistry, for the design and production of industrial coatings with optimal fluorescence/phosphorescence properties (LuminoKrom® range): Optimal ...

Photochromic pigments, inks and paints

To create smart photosensitive inks, paints and coatings, that change color with light, OliKrom relies on 2 smart pigment technologies : Color change at a defined light intensity, and color recovery when optical excitation decrea ...

Thermochromic pigments, inks & paints

To create smart temperature-sensitive inks, paints and coatings, OliKrom relies on 3 patented thermochromic technologies: Color change at a defined temperature T 1 and color recovery when temperature drops back below T 1 . The tem ...

Who we are ?

Olikrom is collaborating with industrials of all sectors in their innovation projects in designing and producing the perfect solution based on intelligence of colours.

Olikrom produces “tailor-made” smart pigments and adds those pigments in paints, inks, masterbatchs. Olikrom assists industrials in their feasibility concept, R&D (long and mid-term), pre-industrial phasing (support in validation test process).

Olikrom produces inks, paints, masterbatchs (from litre / kg to Ton). Its team of experts is at your entire disposal for any technical assistance in the industrial integration of smart materials or coatings (recommendation, quality control, training…)

Olikrom intelligence solution is based on a new generation of patented pigments which change of colours depending on temperature, light or pressure.


In 2012, Olikrom is the winner in the national competition organised by the higher education and research department.

In 2014, Olikrom signed two exclusive licences with the CNRS and the SATT Aquitaine/ university of Bordeaux.

In 2015, Olikrom received the “PME Bougeons-nous” prize organised by RMC/BFM Business.

In 2016, Olikrom is seen as a global leader by the global smart industry market research report !

In 2017, Olikrom is facing its new industrial production site.
