The array of effects and variants in car manufacturing vehicle colours is always evolving, from glass flakes to high chroma Cranberry Red and Crystal Rainbow. Standox Axalta responds to ever-changing requirements of OEM trends by developing up to 25,000 new colour formulas in its global colour labs every year.
The European colour lab develops an average of 100 new formulas every month, and in Asia,Shanghai, China, it’s nearly 500. Standox colour labs in Tlalnepantla, Mexico and in Front Royal in Virginia, USA, also contribute to the total. The labs all follow strict, standardised colour development processes to ensure they always produce the same colour results.
