The quickest way to find the right color

Glasurit presents state-of-the-art RATIO-Scan II color measuring device - The perfect tool for big bodyshops

Münster, (PresseBox) - The growing diversity and complexity of colors makes color matching for automotive refinishing increasingly difficult, costing bodyshops valuable working time. Now, Glasurit, BASF Coatings' automotive refinish paint brand and a leader in color technology, is presenting a solution to this problem: its new color measuring device RATIO-Scan II. The portable battery-powered device measures the color precisely and, when connected to the users' computer, takes them to the desired mixing formula via a specific software program - quickly and easily. RATIO-Scan II is particularly well suited for large-scale bodyshops, which tend to be confronted with difficult color-matching jobs more frequently due to their higher throughput.

Glasurit RATIO-Scan II measures the exact color directly at the body of the vehicle. At the push of a button, the integrated sensors measure the color. The measuring results are then downloaded to a computer and are further processed with the Glasurit Profit-Manager or Profit-Manager PRO applications. In the Profit-Manager, the measurement results indicate the matching color chips from the COLOR-PROFI System (CPS) and the corresponding mixing formulas. Regular updates ensure that solutions are also available for the latest colors. The mixing formulas can be weighed in directly at the scales and the custom colors archived.

For Michel Bodeson, Product Management Topcoats and Color Systems, RATIO-Scan II is the quickest way to find the right color. "The color-matching process is now much faster. Handling the device is easy, and with its sizable memory, it can store all the color readings taken during the course of a typical day's work. In short, it's a 100% successful system for our customers."
