Glasurit, BASF's premium paint brand, is introducing the fully automatic mixing machine Alfa CR4/CR6, powered by Refinity which will offer a 100% digital color retrieval experience for bodyshops. With the Alfa CR4/CR6, painters can now complete up to six mixes in less than 15 minutes, which is a groundbreaking achievement in terms of speed and accuracy. From the ability to complete six mixes at once to reducing paint waste, the Alfa CR4/CR6 will transform the refinishing process into an even more sustainable one.

End-to-end efficiency

The Alfa CR4/CR6, powered by Refinity, dramatically accelerates the throughput with 100 Line. The fully integrated and connected mixing machine converts digital color retrievals into perfectly accurate mixes and allows bodyshops to benefit from a high-performance digital experience. Refinity, Glasurit's cloud-based digital platform, offers body shops and painters an exclusive seamless digital experience for all their business solutions.

The Alfa CR4/CR6, Powered by Refinity, leads to direct benefits for customers and painters.

1)    Increased process efficiency: The machine comes with less manual effort, fewer mistakes and an outstanding speed performance, producing up to six mixes in less than 15 minutes. Compared to six manual mixes which can take an average time of six minutes each, body shops can save up to 60% of time with the new Alfa CR4/CR6 mixing machine. Additionally, and crucially, the machine optimizes the daily workload of painters and leads to a higher satisfaction at work.
