Addressing Industry Challenges

The introduction of a new paint product can be resource-intensive, encompassing significant internal efforts and speed challenges for paint laboratories. The “Wet Work” required to integrate a new base paint into existing systems can create significant backlogs, with each new base requiring up to 100 panels for accurate color matching. This intensive labor can severely delay product launches due to limited manpower.

Situated in our global headquarters in Lawrenceville, New Jersey, Datacolor’s Paint Lab Services supports paint companies throughout North America. By outsourcing database management and panel production to Datacolor, paint laboratories can significantly reduce workload, improve accuracy, and speed up the time-to-market for new products.
