Using the attributes of EL we have created products that have eliminated competition of other lighting sources. The thinness and flexibility allows us to create a product with retractability to be used at tradeshows, in-store advertising, and bar/restaurant windows. The durability and thinness allows us to create products that can be walked on such as our floor mat light. Our paper thin EL can be used for double sided signage with a thickness of only 3/8”. The flexibility and brightness allows us to “light up” cylinders and column wraps. Just imagine products that can be lit with Ellumilite. Currently with sales of over $1.7.
