Axalta has announced the launch of Advanced Color Proofing, the latest enhancement to its proprietary color retrieval software, ColorNet.
“Advanced Color Proofing allows collision customers to view paint colors and digitally rotate them on 3D vehicle renderings to determine color match and blendability across panels,” says Troy Weaver, vice president, Axalta, Global Refinish. “Advanced Color Proofing reduces the need to paint multiple test panels to achieve the desired appearance, which saves time and materials and maximizes productivity in the body shop.”
Weaver adds Axalta is dedicated to making color formula retrieval and match as accurate and easy as possible for collision centers, stating, “By adding Advanced Color Proofing to ColorNet, we are extending our software platform to include 3D modeling, which will transform how color blendability is determined and enhance the user experience for our customers.”
Axalta provides many sources for refinish color match technology. ColorNet is a user-friendly software platform that helps make color formula retrieval and reporting quicker and easier. ColorNet gives users access to a comprehensive library of color formulas and integrates with Axalta’s entire suite of color tools. All ColorNet data is stored securely on the web, and color formulas are automatically updated on a regular basis, ensuring shops have immediate access to the latest evolvements in color, the company says.
In addition to ColorNet, Axalta offers a range of innovative color tools, including its award-winning Acquire Quantum EFX spectrophotometer, that are developed with advanced technology to help customers maximize efficiency and profitability.
