Axalta daylight lamps continue to be huge bodyshop success

Introduced back in 2015, Axalta have been producing LED daylight lamps that make the entire automotive paint repair journey faster, easier and more reliable as they are designed to simulate differing light conditions and intensities.

To date, 17,000 of the lamps have been sold around the world.

In Axalta’s EMEA region, the daylight lamps are available from Axalta’s portfolio of refinish brands – ChromaLamp from Cromax; ColorSpot from Spies Hecker; Standolux iQ from Standox, and Color Inspector from Syrox, Challenger, Duxone and Nason Finishes. Color Inspector is also available in North America and Asia Pacific.

Dr Martin Wulf, Colour and Technical Manager for Axalta’s Refinish Systems business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) said: “The modern, energy-saving LED-technology behind our daylight lamps ensures that refinishers work with the best lighting conditions, which is critical to achieving right-first-time results.

“The lamps mimic six different levels of ambient light making them perfectly suited for use throughout the whole refinish process – everything from damage appraisals and checking colour matches, to examining freshly painted surfaces for coverage and hiding issues.”

Thanks to their smart arrangement of energy-saving LED bulbs, the daylight lamps can represent bright natural daylight as well as simulate lower level light around sunset. These are both important when checking colour, especially for metamerism.
