Digital colour identification
Glasurit Profit Manager: The colour management system
The Profit Manager provides the basis for colour identification with Glasurit, offering features such as a simple database search as well as the Glasurit Color Online database, the integration of conventional colour tools and connection to the Glasurit RATIO Scan spectrophotometer.
Colour measurement – with Glasurit RATIO Scan
The wide range and complexity of colours make colour identification increasingly difficult, taking up valuable working time. Glasurit's RATIO Scan II is the solution. The portable spectrophotometer measures colour precisely and takes you to the desired mixing formula quickly and easily. NEW: Glasurit’s RATIO Scan 12/6 spectrophotometer is a refinement of Glasurit RATIO Scan II – and is a quantum leap for colour identification.
Finding a colour code – with Glasurit Color Online
Over some 130 years of company history, thanks to excellent relationships with vehicle manufacturers, we have compiled the world's largest colour database, from the original colours of the early days of automobiles to current OEM colours, including countless variations and customer-specific service mixing formulas. You can access the entire global mixing formula database, which is updated daily for all passenger car and commercial vehicle colours across all vehicle manufacturers. (see also OEM approvals).
Conventional colour identification
Colour retrieval – with the Glasurit Color Profi System
The Glasurit Color Profi System (CPS) is a sophisticated system of colour chips coated with original paint. The front of the chip shows the respective colour as a spray-out, while the back features the barcode and colour code to use to find the corresponding mixing formula for the colour on the computer.
Truck colours – Glasurit Color Truck Guide
The Glasurit Color Truck Guide is our efficient colour identification solution for commercial vehicles – a collection of every colour from all commercial vehicle manufacturers, displayed on a colour swatch.
Colour adjustment charts – a practical overview for all mixing bases
Pictograms next to each mixing base provide information on the colour group, colour bias and front and side views, as well as on purity and chroma. The separate Multi-Effekt colour adjustment chart makes the visual assessment of mixing bases easier, thanks to its large colour chips.
