How does car paint colour matching work?

When the paint code of a vehicle has been determined, there are often several variants of the particular shade. These differences are not unusual, as different batches or paint from different paint suppliers will often have a slight difference in shading.

To determine which variant will work best on a vehicle, most repair shops rub the area with an abrasive paste to remove any airborne contaminants (that could cause a dull and faded look) and “scan” the area with a colour matching camera. Once the exact variant of the colour is identified, it will be tested and compared to the vehicle to confirm its accuracy.

How does Brighton Panel Works provide a superior car paint matching service?

In addition to our state of the art computer colour matching technology, we use the same paint that your car manufacturer uses – all to ensure the best possible paint matching service.

While many modern car finishes don’t fade to a great extent, external elements such as UV rays, weather, road grime and general wear and tear can all affect and alter your car’s paint job.

Determining the exact shade of your car colour is only the first step. A badly carried out paint job, even if it is with the correct shade, could result in a patchy effect. Here at Brighton Panel Works, our highly trained technicians are able to gradually “blend” the paint into the surrounding panels for a flawless finish that will impress even the most discerning eye.
