Sherwin-Williams is a leading paint manufacturer that offers a wide range of paint products and services, including paint-matching technology. This technology allows customers to match existing paint colors, even if the original paint is unavailable. This technique uses a combination of digital and physical color-matching techniques.

How Sherwin-Williams' Paint-Matching Technology Works

The first step is digitally photographing the existing paint color using a color-matching device. The device captures the color and sends it to a computer program that analyzes the color data. The program then compares the color to a library of over 1.4 million paint colors to find the closest match.

Once the program identifies the closest match, it generates a color recipe to create the paint. The recipe includes the exact amounts of each paint pigment needed to create the color. The next step is to mix the paint according to the recipe. Sherwin-Williams uses a computerized paint-matching system that automatically dispenses the correct amounts of each paint pigment. This process ensures that the paint mixes consistently and accurately, and PatchMaster's technicians provide you with a flawless finish every time. 

Once mixed, the paint is applied to a small test area to ensure accurate color matches. If the color is not a perfect match, the store's color-matching expert adjusts the recipe and re-mixes the paint until the color is an exact match.

In addition to the digital color-matching process, Sherwin-Williams also uses a physical color-matching process. This process involves using a color fan deck and a set of paint swatches to match colors. The store's color-matching expert uses the color fan deck to compare the existing paint color to the swatches and make any necessary adjustments to the recipe.

How ColorSnap Match Can Help You Find the Perfect Paint Color

Sherwin-Williams also offers a ColorSnap Match service, which allows customers to use a smartphone to take a photo of the existing paint color and then use the ColorSnap app to match it to one of the Sherwin-Williams paint colors. This service is available for both iOS and Android devices.
