(PresseBox) ( Münster, )
The R-M website's Color Explorer Online section, which is dedicated to colour research, has now added new features: more formulae, improved search criteria and on-screen colour display. These features have been added to save time and improve reliability.

Greater accuracy

This is the website's most visited section: Color Explorer Online helps automotive refinish professionals in their daily work searching for colour formulae. They have over 700,000 listed colours at their disposal, all just a few mouse clicks away. Since February 2009, a new version has offered optimised search criteria: Users can now browse a shorter list of manufacturers faster and more efficiently, by entering several letters of the name. They can also select a range of years, rather than just one year. A new search parameter enabling users to select matt or textured colours has also been added to complement the pre-existing criteria, these are: the code or name of the colour, vehicle manufacturer, model, year, component, colour or effect, etc. This comprehensive range of criteria helps to ensure fast and effective searches.

More references

Color Explorer Online now holds more information: Formulae listed by all worldwide R-M Customer Services departments are included in the database. In other words, any special requests for which a tailored formula has been created are now available on Color Explorer Online for anyone to research. Included within this extensive colour database are: formulae complete with details of the vehicle model, year of production and their colour type. Unique international references, which are published exclusively on Color Explorer Online, ensure that this online colour database is a comprehensive and reliable source of information.

Faster operation

R-M has made searching easier for automotive refinish professionals by systematically displaying the correct colour for each request on the screen. The benefit of this is that it makes it easier to identify the correct colour from the various tints and shades available (light, medium or dark, etc.). Color Explorer Online is a true working tool, which saves the automotive refinish professional a significant amount of time and virtually eliminates errors.
