Architectural and decorative coatings provide numerous benefits to buildings beyond vibrancy, including colors that are lasting and memorable. Of all types of coatings, architectural makes up the main market share as construction and building require a large variety of paints. The aesthetic success of a building or structure is a result of consistent, accurate color to ensure brand consistency and reliability.
Architectural paints and coatings play a significant role in physically protecting a building and brand reputation, which is why it’s crucial to have the right tools in place for color measurement. X-Rite’s color measurement solutions ensure quality standards are met while delivering visually-appealing and color-accurate buildings that meet the most rigorous quality standards.
Customizable solutions from X-Rite provide architectural paints and coatings manufacturers the ability to:
