Using the latest color-matching technology, i1 Paint provides a quality paint match for common customer samples such as color cards, fan decks and other painted items.
Retail associates can measure a sample in just one second and connect to X-Rite ColorDesigner PLUS paint software to quickly formulate paint recipes. Compared to visual color matching, i1 Paint can save paint counter associates up to 30 minutes per color match, reduce mismatched paints, decrease waste, and increase customer satisfaction.
“X-Rite is committed to offering paint retailers a wide range of color matching solutions to fit their individual needs and budgets starting with i1 Paint to measure common customer samples to our groundbreaking MetaVue non-contact imaging spectrophotometer for matching complex, multicolor or textured samples,” said Dave Visnovsky, product manager, X-Rite. “By combining measurement devices with formulation software and dispensing systems, retailers can measure a custom color and formulate an accurate paint match for their customers.”
i1 Paint features:
- Continuous ring illumination (light source) and 31-point spectral resolution, resulting in consistent measurement readings;
- A lightweight, portable design with multi-color LED indicator for one-hand operation and easy readings;
- Durable construction that uses a filter glass to prevent damage and contamination to the device’s optical components;
- A separate calibration kit that can be secured to the paint counter for fast device calibration;
- A Kensington security slot, which can be used with a wide variety of Kensington locks to protect and secure the instrument.
