PPG Introduces New Tint Guide Posters
Sept. 30, 2016—PPG has upgraded its tint guides and now offers new posters that provide quick recommendations for refinish situations that require tinting.
“We traveled to over 80 collision centers to listen to what our customers had to say,” said Mike Henry, PPG global color tools and color variant manager. “We talked to more than 150 industry professionals and found that our color chips are their go-to tool. We also learned that there isn’t always the option to blend: When that happens, tinting becomes the priority. Knowing that time and speed are important in the refinish process, we made improvements to our tinting guides to address the issue.”
The new posters feature an innovative visual pictorial system. Using these, technicians will be able to quickly look at the pictograms to locate toner qualities and their impact on the overall mix. Face and flop color characteristics are easily identified and the pictograms also address pearls, aluminums, special effects and more.
