Fit4PaintBASF has become the exclusive global supplier to Fit4Paint, BMW’s private label paint-related products (PRP) offering.

Fit4Paint is a portfolio of protection, cleaning, sanding, masking, mixing and painting, and polishing accessories put together by paint experts that can easily meet the specific needs of BMW painters and is perfectly aligned with BMW’s ColorSystem paint portfolio.

This agreement, which runs for two years, is exclusive to BMW authorized dealers and body shops in 18 countries (Germany, Austria, Spain, Portugal, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Czech Republic, Romania, Hungary, Russia, South Africa, Japan, Korea, Slovakia, Slovenia), offering ordering, consultation and service for paint and paint-related products from a single source provided by BASF Coatings. This ensures optimum integration into the existing BMW ColorSystem service and training concept, and access to a comprehensive, customizable product portfolio, BASF says.

BASF became the exclusive coatings partner for BMW’s ColorSystem refinish system in EMEA early last year until 2022 with option to extend for another two years.

The two companies have collaborated for more than 36 years in the refinishing sector. With the Fit4Paint portfolio, BASF offers an advanced and dynamic portfolio of paint-related products, covering the entire paint and cosmetic repair process, including workplace safety and health protection, the company says.

“BMW body shops utilize the full suite of training, advanced business management solutions including audits and digital color management to ensure their teams stay ahead,” says Martina Fischer, Global Strategic Account Manager BMW Group, BASF Automotive Refinish Solutions Europe. “Fit4Paint seamlessly completes the offer for the body shop with OEM recommended paint accessories which assures a higher and safer standard of refinish work.”

New Digital Solution Helps Customers Bring Colours to Life

AkzoNobel 3D colour visualization tool
AkzoNobel Powder Coatings has developed a new web application 3D colour visualization tool within its Interpon webshop to help customers better understand how a powder coating’s colour, texture and finish that look good in theory, will actually appear in reality. 

The tool provides instant access to thousands of colours in the Interpon range. Using a 360-degree dynamic camera and simulated lighting, the customer is given a true-to-life image of how the colour performs to a degree of accuracy and realism not possible before in a virtual environment.  

Rather than the image being ‘flat’, the customer can orientate the ‘virtual’ panel to see how the light reflects and the colour looks from different angles.
