Color match is great, as far as VOC regulations I’m not sure if 55 line passes even with 10% hardener which does cut down the VOC emissions. But this is for production collision shops primarily, some restoration and custom painters still use it in Ontario this I am sure of.
Your supplier is right, a full setup of toners,lids,scale,computer,etc is a lot of money. But provided you will have a product usage at a certain level, it would warrant them installing a system on consignment at least. As far as VOC, take a look at the onyx low VOC solvent if you want to stay with basf
I use mosaic. Some colors are very transparent and the color match is not the best. I order paint mixed by the jobber. I’m in Toronto as well. We were using Keystone in North York. I would have a rep come and scan anything that I needed a good color match. It was still hit or miss.
I don’t spray enough to justify a mixing bank. The metallic control is good, blending is good.
No jobber should be able to sell high voc products here.
