Colour Tools 

PPG's colour network spans the globe, providing the grassroots support local cusotmers need...that makes PPG the No.1 formula for colour.

 

Coloursense...all the tools!

We all know that having the right tools makes getting the job done so much quicker and easier. Choosing PPG gives you access to an unmatched range of the latest colour identification tools that helps take the guesswork out of colour matching.  It starts with the industry leading ‘Paint Manager’ colour retrieval system and is backed by a comprehensive ‘colour toolkit’ containing Tint Fans in DG and BC, a convenient wall chart of tinters in chromatic circle, colour wheels and handy tinter identification stickers. Premium PPG paint systems (Envirobase High Performance waterborne basecoat or GRS solvent-borne) also come with an extensive colour-box set, comprising ‘Prime’, ‘Variant’ and ‘ANZ’ Colour Boxes. For maximum accuracy, this huge range of colour chips is sprayed with actual PPG paint finishes and colour boxes are updated regularly throughout the year.

PPG also sets the standard in spectrophotometer electronic colour identification technology which is seen as the future of colour matching. The exclusive Prophet® II Colour Analyser is an easy to use device capable of scanning a painted surface to precisely measure its colour. It links to Paint Manager where innovative PPG software makes a rapid colour selection from primes, variants and specials. Ask a PPG Representative to explain how Prophet® II can make identifying the closest colour match as simple and fast as Click & Go!

     

 

Coloursense...training that makes sense

Spending a little time on colour training can save a great deal of time in the long term. No matter how experienced you are there are always tips, tricks and techniques that can help sharpen your skills and a PPG training course is an ideal place to learn them. Some of the most popular courses include Colour Adjustment 1 & 2. Held at PPG training centres around the region, the courses are hands-on and cover a wide variety of topics, including:
• Why OEM colour variations occur
• How to make better use of colour tools
• A variety of advanced blending techniques
• The latest techniques and processes for dealing with single stage, basecoat/clearcoat and tri-coat colours.

After just one PPG training course it’s common for paint technicians to save at least one hour of labour per day back in the workshop.  In an industry climate where skilled technicians are difficult to recruit, that makes PPG colour training an ideal way to up-skill current staff with the knowledge and confidence they need to get the job done more efficiently and with a superior end result.
