Color matching the paint on your vehicle is both an
art and exacting science. At Neiman's we believe
that vehicle repair is an art and we take great
pride in our work.
Auto manufacturers apply paint to the bare shell of
the vehicle in ovens where the temperatures exceed
190-degrees Farenheit. This is because the auto
manufacturers paint the car before any of the
wiring, electronics, hardware, or interiors are
assembled into the vehicle. In the collision repair
business, the paint can only be dried at
temperatures up to 180-degrees—any hotter and damage
will be done to the car's mechanical, electrical,
and interior systems. In addition, all auto
manufacturers use an electrolitically applied
"E-coat" primer that is applied to the bare vehicle
unibody or sheet metal—this is an immersion process
in a liquid, electrically charged solution that is
impossible to duplicate in the repair industry.
Finally, the colors used by auto manufacturers may
vary widely on the same models painted with the same
color. Variations in shading and coloring depend on
if your car was painted at the front end or tail end
of an assembly line run of paint. Most new cars
today are also painted with "two coat" or "tri-coat"
paint processes—where mica, pearl, and metallic
materials are applied sequentially in the factory
finish. These finishes often vary in appearance
based on the angle from which they are viewed. For
example, a green metallic paint can appear
"teal-colored" when looking at a straight or flat
surface such as a hood, but nearly "black" when
looking at a rounded surface such as a fender.
All of these factors make paint mixing, tinting, and
blending in the collision repair process even more
critical. To properly repair a minor dent of several
square inches, an entire panel may need to painted
and the adjacent panels may need to be blended in
order to achieve a precise color match. At Neiman's
Collision Center, we use computer-controlled
sensing devices that provide the refinish technician
with a precise formula to match the paint color on a
