Color Science

For both the bodyshop manager and the vehicle owner, the color match quality of any repair is the ultimate test of a refinish product, and PPG excels in this area.

The science of color is really the core of our business and we know that the ability to reproduce the original color is the thing that Bodyshops strive for most when refinishing a vehicle.

PPG's exceptional ability to reproduce original color stems from four key areas:

Outstanding Color Match
Four dedicated color laboratories across the world ensure all new Motor Manufacturer colors and variants are accurately matched. Strong working relationships with the Motor Manufacturers ensures early involvement in the design of a color and at the production stages to identify any variants.

Accurate Production
All tinters are produced to a tight specification in state-of-the-art production facilities. Every batch is sprayed out and color-checked to ensure consistent color reproduction.

Standardised Application Techniques
There is one recommended technique for each of PPG product lines and these techniques are used through the complete PPG supply chain from production, quality assessment, and color match through to those used by PPG's color tool suppliers and PPG customers.

Industry-Leading Color tools
PPG recognises that correct color identification hugely affects bodyshop performance and profitability. To this end, PPG is able to supply industry leading color identification tools.
