How Accurate is Paint Match Technology?
When you buy a vehicle fresh off the manufacturing dock, they are shiny and look like they can get through any type of condition. But then reality sets in. Wear and tear from exposure to the elements and damage from accidents are often grounds for needing a paint job. Regardless of how any injury to your paint occurred, there is a science that goes into making sure the new paint perfectly matches your vehicle’s original tone.
Matching auto paint is complicated, in part, because vehicle paint is composed of resin, pigment and solvent. Some paint tones may also be altered when the clear finish is applied to protect the paint from the elements, such as abundant sun or acidic water.
Automotive paint matching used to be done with color sheets with certain codes released by the manufacturer with your vehicle’s model number and date of release. This method is outdated because even when the color looks like it matches, how it is printed on paper is different than how it is composed and applied to a vehicle.
This is why you should not be fooled by the abundance of auto paint shops throughout Phoenix. Only a handful of them perform high-quality and ethical work. The use of new technology and products help the ethical auto body shops achieve a truer match to a vehicle’s original or existing paint finish.
