PPG’s industrial coatings business offers MeasureColor Mobile, a cloud-based platform that combines an app and handheld mobile scanning device to identify color matches to the company’s industrial coatings products. The system is designed to improve the speed and accuracy of color selection.

To generate a color match, users place the scanner on the surface of a source object, which can include painted metal, plastic, leather, fabric, drywall or other materials. The Bluetooth-enabled device interprets the color data, calculates the color difference and sends a PPG color match to the MeasureColor mobile app on the user’s tablet or smartphone.

Color matches are displayed by name, product code, product category, gloss range and resin. Clicking on product codes also gives users access to product data sheets, safety data sheets, cure conditions and inventory status.
