    Benefits of a Colour Check Light System
    Recreating natural sunlight indoors is an important advantage to auto body shop professionals, and it is even more necessary on cloudy days or in the wintertime with shorter days of sunlight. To maintain peak productivity in a shop, being able to instantly inspect with light that is equivalent to natural sunlight is essential. 

    Our portable light produces a virtually perfect match to natural sunlight, which makes automotive colour matching easier and faster. Under regular indoor lighting conditions, the paint job on a car may appear to offer full coverage or match perfectly. Looking at the paint with our PPS™ ​ Colour Check Light often reveals colour mismatch, poor coverage, swirl marks or other defects that you may never see with normal artificial lighting. But you will see these defects when the vehicle is taken outdoors in natural sunlight. Our colour check light helps you locate and fix problems before they lead to costly rework.

    This colour check light kit is useful for both pre- and post-paint inspections. Estimators who use the light can prepare more accurate estimates that better serve both the bodyshop and auto owner. Auto paint technicians can inspect the quality of their work in progress. Automotive detailers appreciate the portability of the light to inspect vehicles from all angles. Our colour check lighting system is a tool that nearly everyone in an auto body shop will find useful.
