The right paint for every classic car

After last year’s huge success, Glasurit demonstrates color-matching service "Classic Car Colors" again at the "Techno Classica", the world’s largest classic car show in Essen

Münster/Essen, (PresseBox) - BASF Coatings and its Glasurit brand of paint will be appearing again at the "Techno Classica" in Essen. This year’s show dates are from March 26 to 30. And it’s a special year – the 20th anniversary of the Techno Classica, the world’s largest classic car show, and once again, over 1,000 exhibitors and 150,000 visitors are expected from 26 countries in Europe, Asia, and North America. For classic car owners, the Glasurit booth is the ideal place to find the right solution for repairing damage to their vehicles’ paintwork. Glasurit will be presenting its color-matching service Classic Car Colors in Hall 5.0, booth 205. This system can be used to find the matching color for refinishing nearly any classic car, since Glasurit has the world’s largest color archive, with over 200,000 colors. It offers a good basis for solving a variety of refinishing problems and can be accessed via

Online database and COLOR-PROFI System are the ideal basis for repairing damage to the finish

With original colors and their assignment to the COLOR-PROFI System, the Classic Car Colors database provides insight into the history of automotive colors. Previously existing color information and original color samples serve as the basis for the collection and provide an idea of how vehicle colors may have looked in vintage years. The database is constantly expanded and updated. The old samples can change due to yellowing and other factors. That’s why when classic cars need to be refinished, it’s essential to compare the actual vehicle’s finish with the matching color chip from the COLOR-PROFI System. This is done directly at the Glasurit bodyshop.

RATIO-Spot-Repair System designed for refinishing cosmetic damage

Glasurit also offers classic car owners solutions for refinishing cosmetic damage. The system eliminates the need to redo large areas, since refinishing is limited to the damaged spots. Most of the original paintwork of the car is preserved, which maintains its value at the same time.

By using these systems all legal solvent-reduction requirements can be complied with anywhere in the world, and with regard to appearance and durability, the products meet the same quality standards as solvent-borne paints. In this area, the company offers a wide variety of services to support its customers.
