Besides our in-house production of colourants, we completely guide the customer from machine selection to recipe database creation, specifically tuned and optimized for any type of paint.
The principle of tinting
One push of the button to create any colour, in any quantity. That is the principle of an automated colour tinting system. But it only works if all the variables that can influence a colour can be strictly controlled within given tolerances. Of course the colour pastes play an important part, the colour and tinting strength setting must be under strict control, to ensure the colour consistency of the final end product. No colour variations. Consistency from batch to batch, year after year, the exact, accurate colour setting. That’s what Ralston guarantees.
Besides the colour tolerances of the colourants, also the dispensing accuracy of the dispensing machine and the batch-to-batch colour setting control of the base coatings are key variables that need to be strictly controlled. We have the expertise and experience to guide our customers in every aspect of the system.
