Colour Matching

What is it?

At Ideal, we use PPG’s Prophet Colour Matching Camera. Here’s a short description of the cameras from PPG.

“PPG’s next-generation colour tool, the Prophet® II Colour Analyser, sets the standard in electronic colour identification technology. Made exclusively for PPG, this ergonomically designed multi-angle spectrophotometer device is capable of scanning a painted surface from five reflective angles to precisely measure its colour. It then links to PPG’s Paint Manager colour retrieval Imagesystem where unique, specially developed PPG software allows it to make a rapid colour selection from primes, variants and specials. With Prophet® II, identifying the closest colour match can be as fast and easy as a ‘Click’ to measure the colour then, if the rating meets a specific tolerance and there’s room to blend, you simply mix that formula and ‘Go’ paint the job. Advanced features and user-friendly operation give Prophet® II the potential to make the tedious task of selecting the closest colour match so much simpler, giving you a big time saving advantage.”
