The identification of the matching colour is one of the decisive process steps in automotive refinishing. Speed and precision are essential because the human eye is very critical.
Only when there is no visible difference between the original finish and the repaired area, the repair job was performed professionally.
This is why the continuous improvement of colour identification tools is of central importance for Glasurit. What we offer is a complete system of colour information and colour tools.


The modules of the system:

The mobile device measures the exact colour directly on the car body. Then the readings can easily be transferred to the computer where they are processed with Profit Manager or Profit Manager Pro.
