said it continues to drive innovation and demonstrate its ongoing commitment to meeting customers' needs with branded daylight lamps.
To date, 17,000 Axalta daylight lamps have been sold globally since being introduced in 2015.
The LED daylight lamps are designed to simulate differing light conditions and intensities. In Axalta's EMEA region, the daylight lamps are available from Axalta's portfolio of refinish brands – ChromaLamp from Cromax; ColorSpot from Spies Hecker; Standolux iQ from Standox, and Color Inspector from Syrox, Challenger, Duxone and Nason Finishes. Color Inspector is also available in North America and Asia Pacific.
"The modern, energy-saving LED-technology behind our daylight lamps ensures that refinishers work with the best lighting conditions, which is critical to achieving right-first-time results," said Dr. Martin Wulf, Colour and Technical Manager for Axalta's Refinish Systems business in the EMEA. "The lamps mimic six different levels of ambient light making them perfectly suited for use throughout the whole refinish process - everything from damage appraisals and checking color matches, to examining freshly painted surfaces for coverage and hiding issues. The technology ensures that our refinishers operate in the best possible lighting conditions."
The daylight lamps can represent bright natural daylight as well as simulate lower level light around sunset. These are both important when checking color, especially for metamerism.
"The convenient wireless operation of the lamps, powerful batteries, and ergonomic handling make them an invaluable cost- and time-saving tool for the professional body shop and this is tangibly evident in the 17,000 of them in the market," said Wulf.
