BASF Automotive Refinish Announces New Portable Color Matching Tool

BASF Automotive Refinish announced its COLOR-MAXmobile2 solid color tool. COLOR-MAXmobile2 is compact and portable and provides 531 color chips that can be easily compared to the vehicle with up to five colors on a single swatch, the company says.

BASF says its family of COLOR-MAX tools is the most advanced color matching system in the industry in terms of accuracy, color range and ease of use. BASF’s design includes a larger range of chips for white, red and black colors. The deck contains the whitest whites and the darkest blacks available in refinish technology today, according to BASF. Using the COLOR-MAXmobile2, a paint technician can scan the entire range of colors simply by fanning out the swatch book. A hole in each chip is designed to allow easier viewing against a painted surface. The case allows the user to open the deck past 90 degrees for easier maneuverability.

All the color chips are matched in R-M ONYX HD and Glasurit 90-Line to ensure the best reproduction possible.

“COLOR-MAXmobile2 is an accurate, inexpensive and powerful tool that will improve performance and save body shops time with the first use and everyday after that,” said Vitor Margaronis, marketing director, Coatings Solutions, North America.
