Color market challenge. Color matching is a mounting challenge because the variety of car colors in the market is steadily growing. There are more than 60,000 colors around today, with some 1,000 added each year, from the automobile and commercial vehicle industry. Optimal color matching processes. One of the daily tasks of a painter is to quickly determine the accurate color for the car refinishing job. The Spies Hecker Color Index contains all current car colors, including variants. Modern digital tools like the Color Dialog spectro, on screen color display, and formula search, all speed up the refinishing process to get our customers vehicles back to them as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Today water is the basis for our future. Permahyd is one of the world’s first complete waterborne refinishing paint systems. Spies Hecker sets several new standards with this system:
What makes this technology stand out is how easy it is to use and how efficient the results are. Due to the high opacity, you save, for instance, number of coats and material. Here’s another advantage - waterborne technology complies with the EU’s strict VOC regulations. Above all, it fulfills your customer’s high demands, ensuring that you achieve brilliant results all round.
The prospects - simply brilliant. • Ideal for modern two and three-stage refinishing in all OEM colors. • Simple mixing and use of colors - only add demineralised water, no other components necessary. • Efficient application - many colors require just 1.5 coats. • The excellent opacity means you save up to 30% material. • You can use up residual paint, considerably reducing your waste disposal cost. • The solvent content is reduced by 90% compared to conventional technology. • You display environment-consciousness and enhance your corporate image.
