baslac® Colour Matching

Colour Accuracy can mean the difference between Profit and Loss


baslac® The most effective Colour Matching

The identification of colour is a critical component in the professional automotive refinishing industry. Speed and precision are essential for both customer satisfaction and body shop efficiencies.

Colour accuracy can mean the difference between profit and loss, as re-dos burn revenue and up to now, body shops have typically had to accept a trade-off: quick and easy handling with compromised colour accuracy or a high level of accuracy with slow and inconvenient handling.

Throughout the tinting process, baslac® offers you a comprehensive colour support package that will guide you quickly and effectively to find the exact colour you need for your job.

When it comes to colour identification and colour-matching, you can reap the benefits of our innovative colour tools.

Quick, Reliable and Digital

The baslac® e-finder star features a five-angle technology for a more accurate reading of all solid, metallic and pearlescent paints. A green or red LED signal light tells the user immediately if the measurement is correct.
