Color-Matching Your Car Paint

Colors are matched using our in house “camera” that identifies the color on an existing finish to produce a formula. Although this technology has existed for over ten years, Sikkens has been a pioneer with advancing the accuracy of these units.

Previous models only identify 6 paint angles while this unit will identify over 12. Having this type of equipment in house gives us a distinct advantage over virtually all other shops when it comes to color matching.

All paint is mixed using a computerized mixing and measuring system. This system takes the formula provided by our color camera and produces the exact color of your vehicle.

The latest technology in mixing measurement is employed in our Accumix paint mixing room.

Automotive Refinishing with Sikkens Waterborne Paint

For paint coatings we have chosen the Sikkens Autowave Waterborne paint system. Sikkens Autowave has proven to be the best waterborne paint system on the market, meeting the highest standards for collision repair. We are one of the few facilities in NC that have the technological capabilities necessary to make the use of waterborne coatings possible. This is important in properly restoring your vehicle, because the majority of vehicles manufactured in the last 3 years have waterborne coatings from the factory. This enables us to reproduce your vehicles factory paint coatings, when others simply do not have the technology to make this possible.
