SHAH ALAM, Malaysia, May 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Axalta (NYSE: AXTA), a leading global supplier of liquid and powder coatings, today launched an upgraded color matching system at its High Performance Coatings (HPC) refinish business located in Southeast Asia. The upgraded software platform incorporates the most up-to-date color formulas and has a user-friendly interface to make color formula retrieval and reporting quick and easy, while also providing online technical support services.
Axalta's color matching system incorporates updated color formulas to cover HPC's extensive portfolio of well-known brands, including HIPIC®, Galaxy®, Nebula® and Orbis®. It aims to digitally enhance and extend color services that HPC provides to its refinish customers in emerging regions including Southeast Asian countries (ASEAN), India and Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
"As a leader of full digital color management in the automotive refinish industry, Axalta's color matching system makes for more efficient bodyshop management," said Andy Jae-Duk Ban, Color Marketing Manager, APAC & MENA. "The advanced digital color management technology will enable bodyshops to search and obtain any color information they require more quickly and efficiently than ever before. This upgraded color management system will strengthen HPC's capability to serve its refinish customers in the region and enhance its competitive advantage in local markets."
The color matching system uses Axalta's extensive database of color formulas and provides online access to users anywhere in the region. It is also helping to digitize the refinish industry and reduce its reliance on matching colors by visual appearance.
