Nix Sensor2

Nix Sensor Ltd. Is launching the Nix Spectro 2, a professional-grade, accessible, and cost-effective spectrophotometer it says offers a new way for industry professionals to capture and communicate spectral data.

“The product development and engineering teams at Nix have been listening closely to the needs of our customers around the world and the message is clear; paint matching and custom formulation must be brought to the masses, especially in the COVID-19 era,” says Matthew Sheridan, CEO and Founder, Nix Sensor Ltd. “Brands must also extend outside of their traditional retail settings if they want to stay competitive. To accomplish this, we needed to build a device that is not only portable, durable, and accurate, but most importantly, easy to use. I am proud to say that we have achieved all of these goals and more with the Spectro 2. I’m excited to see how this technology will once again revolutionize the retail/online paint experience.”

Nix says the Spectro 2 is the only portable spectrophotometer of its kind to capture spectral data across 31 channels (10nm bins over 400-700nm) while being durable enough to be used on a job site and easy enough to be used by a homeowner.

Smaller than a tennis ball and made from solid aluminum, the device’s portability will usher in a new era of “on-site” color matches, formulation and color communication, Nix says. “Accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic and by software tools like Nix Sensor Ltd.’s Paint With CHIP app (paintwithchip.com), we expect the disruption of the traditional retail paint model to continue to accelerate throughout 2021 and beyond,” the company says.

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.
