PPG Industries' automotive refinish business has opened an automated, technologically advanced color matching laboratory in Cleveland, according to Mary Kimbro, PPG global color director. A formal ribbon-cutting ceremony took place Sept. 14, and the new laboratory is expected to be fully operational this month.

A new level of precision and efficiency has been developed for the Refinish Color Matching Laboratory, Kimbro said. She added that the computer-controlled, high-technology facility marks a significant advancement in the science and art of automotive refinish color matching.

"The new laboratory is a reflection of our promise to PPG customers to provide the most effective and accurate color matching tools," Kimbro said. "As leaders in the industry, we are always looking for innovative ways to enhance the color formulation process and ensure that our customers have the support and benefit of the most up-to-date color technology."

The Refinish Color Matching Laboratory addresses a major challenge in the automotive refinish business: the growing number of domestic and import OEM (original equipment manufacturer) color offerings and variations – including exterior, bumper, accent and underhood colors – and the need for collision centers to match those colors. While an OEM's color code may prescribe a particular paint formulation, the actual vehicle finish color may differ from plant to plant. Consequently color variants are always needed, Kimbro said.

PPG's laboratory is equipped to produce accurate color formulations through improved processes and procedures. Using electronic and scientific methods made possible through state-of-the-art equipment and proprietary computer software programs, the patent-pending automated system is capable of running continuously to produce more color formulations, enabling PPG to provide precise color formulas with operational efficiency. The result: quickly obtaining the right variant and formula the first time. Kimbro said the laboratory's capability also enables PPG to expand its data-collection practices, better analyze automotive pigments and explore applicable color formulation opportunities as they occur.

With the opening of the Refinish Color Matching Laboratory, Kimbro said PPG has reinforced its standing as the industry's technological innovator. The laboratory processes and procedures will serve as stepping stones PPG can replicate in its other business divisions to advance its capabilities, she added.
