DuPont Refinish introduces new Cromax® Pro tint

November 27, 2012

DuPont Refinish has extended its range of Cromax® Pro special mixing tints by adding WB1735 Ultra Fine Aluminium which is used in OEM colours such as Nissan KAB, Mercedes 047 Alubeam Silver and BMW Pure Silver. Developed with a new special pigment, the new tint enables refinishers using Cromax® Pro to keep up with the growing demand for aftermarket solutions to liquid silver “alu-shine” effects.

Ann De Clerck, colour marketing manager, DuPont Refinish EMEA, says, “with our close links to our OEM division, we’re able to bring these special tints to the market very quickly, helping our bodyshops to stay current with the OEM trends and remain as productive as possible.”

The new waterborne basecoat tint, available in 0.5 litre tins, is attainable from DuPont Refinish on request.

The Nissan KAB and Mercedes 047 Alubeam Silver formulas for WB1735 are available immediately online on the Colour Online Retrieval System ( and the BMW Pure Silver formula will be uploaded late 2012. The February 2013 issue of the ColorQuick® Pro and ColorNet® Pro CD Rom will be updated with the new tint mixing information.
