ChromaLamp – the new light source from Cromax

Cromax has launched ChromaLamp, the hand-held LED light source that’s an indispensible tool for bodyshops that want to achieve the best possible results.

Kevin Welling, Training Academy Manager for Axalta Coating Systems in the UK and Ireland, says, “the right lighting conditions in bodyshops are essential at every stage of the paint repair process. Cromax has introduced Chromalamp because it supports bodyshops in all areas of their business, not just the tin of paint.”

ChromaLamp is designed for use throughout the refinish process, from identifying pre-paint defects like pinholes and sand scratches, to comparing colour samples, checking colour matches and identifying flake coarseness. And it can also help refinishers to spot post-repair issues like coverage and hiding.

Thanks to its smart arrangement of LED bulbs, ChromaLamp mimics different light conditions with two settings: one to represent full midday sun and one to simulate light around sunset. These options are important when checking colour accuracy, in particular metamerism. Its three different light intensity settings mean that refinishers can use ChromaLamp to check even the palest silvers that standard daylight lamps might over-light.

Welling adds, “ChromaLamp is a must-have bodyshop tool. Its long battery life is a real bonus for busy bodyshops. Thanks to its cordless operation, it’s easy to handle, safer to use and convenient for virtually any work area. And it’s light: with its battery, it weighs less than 500g.”
