RapidMatch X-5 Spectrophotometer

The multi-angle RapidMatch X-5 spectrophotometer gives painters the best starting formula quickly. Searches are performed on an even larger database of prime, variant and special field formulas, pointing the user to the most likely “blendable” match. Returned formulas carry a match rating—the lower the match rating, the closer the formula will be to the measured vehicle color. The extensive database of prime, variant and special field variants greatly enhance the success of the RapidMatch software.
