What is Effect Coarseness (EC)?

The RapidMatch® device continues to serve the automotive repair industry with advanced optics and five angle measurement capability assured to characterize the most difficult OE coatings. Since PPG has the most advanced database of eleven angle color data, we have developed advanced algorithms to not only find the best color but also provide the user with information on texture.

By comparing five angles of color and lightness/darkness data, the system can indicate if the car and the selected formula have similar texture [OK], coarser [C] or finer [F].

OK - Texture is Similar to the Target
C - Texture is Coarser than the Target
F - Texture is Finer than the Target
