Ashland Re-launches Instint Color Tinting Service
Ashland announced the relaunch of Instint, its color tinting service, as it goes digital. In conjunction with NIX, a portable color sensor, Ashland can now scan any color of the rainbow and instantly and precisely create gelcoat in any desired color. Instint has been providing high-quality gelcoats to 50 Instint machines across Europe, dispensing more than 4,000 colors for the past 20 years.
“Ashland was the first company to offer a system where you could choose personalized colors and have high-quality gelcoats produced in minutes. Instint now has a huge database of colors and offers customers across Europe peace of mind that they will get the exact shade they want,” said Jordi Cunill, Product Manager, Ashland Composites EMEA. “Using the portable Nix PRO color sensor, we can measure the color of any item, match it instantly and provide accurate color information to a smartphone. Going digital means color matching has been made easier for our customers and may fuel more creativity. Instint can be used in conjunction with our broad product portfolio of gelcoats and includes non-gelcoat products like AME and epoxies.”
