PPG Debuts New Value Color Tool

Value Color Deck offers 1,800 chromatically sorted color chips for automotive painters.

PPG Automotive Refinish has added a Value Color Deck to its line of color identification and matching tools.

Consisting of 1,800 large color chips chromatically sorted and sprayed with refinish paint, the Value Color Deck provides a visual alternative for finding the best color for a refinish repair.

“The Value Color Deck is one more solution we can offer to collision centers for their vehicle repairs,” said Jennifer Boros, PPG Automotive Refinish segment manager. “For the repair technician, this is an affordable path to visual color assessment. Our customers will quickly view the tool as an accurate and effective means to identify the right color for the job.”

Added Mary Kimbro, PPG global color director, “As industry leaders, we are committed to providing all our customers with the tools they need to do the very best refinish job possible. We want to support the value sector with efficient color tools that simplify the color identification process. The Value Color Deck will go a long way to ensure PPG customers have the right tools for the job.”

According to Boros, the Value Color Deck provides all the necessary information required for most cost-effective repairs. Its chromatic color display offers a number of possibilities of color choices independent of vehicle manufacturer. Also, the large chip size, with its continuous color display, makes it easy to plaque the chip to the vehicle. The Value Color Deck will be updated annually.
