Datacolor MATCH AFX™ was developed to reduce color development time and cost. According to the company, the system quickly delivers color formulas for pigmented wood stains, and the package easily integrates into any paint shop or laboratory with automated links to paint and colorant dispensers.

Datacolor MATCH AFX™ was developed to reduce color development time and cost. According to the company, the system quickly delivers color formulas for pigmented wood stains, and the package easily integrates into any paint shop or laboratory with automated links to paint and colorant dispensers.

The system uses precise measurements and new mathematical models of wood and pigment behavior to deliver better first recipe matching for pigmented and translucent wood stains. It uses measurements of color examples to learn characteristics of different wood species, accurately predicting their effects on final color. The system continues to learn with each successive use, increasing its effectiveness and refining color formula predictions.

The system was designed to significantly reduce preparation work while providing greater accuracy and process efficiency. Using this technology, the number of samples needed to identify and match color on a type of wood reportedly is reduced by up to 80%, saving time and resources.
