Tinter Guide

Maintaining a colour leadership position within the Refinish industry requires constant vigilance and attention to detail. In listening to our customers and the voice of the Paint Technician we have created a range of Tinting Guides.

Introducing the latest colour tool innovation – a visual pictogram system developed with quick “at a glance” recommendations when tinting may be required. Paint Technicians will quickly be able to locate the toner qualities and contribution to the overall mix. Face and Flop colour characteristics are easily identified and are especially helpful when colour travel is important.


In addition to the mixing bases, we have carried the pictogram concept onto the pearls, special effects, aluminums and flop adjusters. And especially helpful – the characteristic information will provide the added confidence required for formula adjustments.  


We understand that vehicle production colour may drift and even under ideal OEM conditions, subtle colour variations are unavoidable. Our audit programs identify the variances quickly and formulations are available as special field variants. With the introduction of the pictogram developed tinting guides, moving colour closer to the target will be a simple, quick and easy process.
