What Costs To Expect:

Expect Basic colours are usually cheaper to match as you can understand they are limited by the manufacturer as far as to paint build and material costs. With metallic paints, pearls and tri-coat xirallic colours, in particular, the cost goes up because of the complexity of the formulas and you need to be aware the more complex the more it costs not only for the matching but for the paints as more layers are required in the factory finishes.

Using Color Matched Paint:

When using colour-matched paint it is the same processes as the industry standard procedure. When spraying Non-metallic product it is best practice to spray in full panels to avoid long term broken-down paint blends. Using metallic pearl paints & tri-coat it is recommended by the manufacturers to blend the color paint to get an exact match. This is required because of the metallic and pearl product makeup. You can mix an exactly matched paint to a factory formula and if it is not blended it will appear slightly different. There are many contributing factors including the way aluminium rests &  the application type used on the panel and or the way the metallic pearl effects with the light. If you want an exact match you will need to blend the paint.

Variations Color Matching Pens & Bottles & Kits:

There are variations when using a touch-up paint pen or bottle for the simple reasons listed above in using colour matched paint. Usually, it would be just a little more noticeable when using these types of applicators especially because of the pooling effect that is applied into scratches and paint chips opposed to traditional spraying of the products.

Making Color Matching More Accurate

Our newly released Color Inspector provides fast and accurate color matching at the touch of a button. When choosing the right color for repairing paint damage, the ambient light plays a crucial role. Usually, the workshop lighting is not sufficient on its own for reliable colour identification. The Color Inspector not only mimics bright natural daylight but also, thanks to a second integrated light source, it can recreate a lower level light by the simple push of a button. The intensity of the energy-saving LEDs can be set to three different levels, adapting to different color shades exceptionally well. As a result, the Axalta Color Inspector can be used for almost anything, from colour comparison with colour swatches and sample panels to damage assessment. Once taken off its stand, the powerful battery ensures the cordless lamp can be used for up to four hours without the need to be constantly recharged. Due to the low energy consumption of the LEDs, the battery can handle a long day’s work and can be charged within two-and-a-half hours. Contact your local
