Comment | More

PPG Industries' commercial coatings group has upgraded its Color Accurate software with expanded search options, simpler functions and more data, including listings for more than 40,000 preformulated colors in 20-plus qualities.

CPC Color Accurate G3 color formulation and management software "provides a suite of powerful tools designed to increase the efficiency and productivity of paint operations at the distributor or with the end user," according to PPG.

“We’ve expanded and enhanced the features of Color Accurate to make color matching easier for our customers,” said Steve Podlas, PPG brand manager for commercial coatings.

PPG commercial coatings include the Amercoat brand, which was used at Gillette Stadium.

Podlas says the upgraded system "is straightforward, easy to learn and easy to use," so customers "can make the right color call quickly."

Features and Upgrades

The new version includes intuitive formula searching, customer management and color storage functions, and a broad range of preformulated color matches corresponding to the colors in the CPC two-volume color book set.

Including color information in the G3 version reduces "the need to call the PPG Color Library or go online to find color formulas," PPG reported. Users can search by preformulated colors by OEM (original equipment manufacturer), national fleet, RAL, competitor code and other criteria.

The software also enables users to input items critical to optimizing profitability on mixes, allows electronic scale and spectrophotometer compatibility, tracks VOC (volatile organic compound) and HAP (hazardous air pollutant) data, and stores tech data sheets.

PPG's commercial coatings group provides polyurethanes, alkyds, epoxies, polyurea, waterborne, pretreatment chemicals and powder coatings for the commercial transportation and light industrial markets. Its brands include Delfleet, Delfleet Essential, and Americoat.
