PPG Introduces PPG LINQ Color Software, PPG MAGICBOX 

Both products provide productivity and sustainability improvements for smaller body shops, PPG says.

PPG announced the introduction of PPG LINQ Color software and the PPG MAGICBOX body shop assistant for smarter wireless mixing in automotive repair shops. The advanced tools are the latest components of the PPG LINQ end-to-end digital solution for the global refinish industry that provide productivity and sustainability improvement for body shops, the company says.

With PPG LINQ, PPG says refinish customers can streamline their repair process by using PPG’s cloud-based platform and its interconnected digital hardware, software and related services. The PPG MagicBox body shop assistant is a small, but powerful, device that communicates environmental conditions in mixing rooms and receives formulas direct from the PPG LINQ Color software.

These new tools also extend the digital ecosystem to smaller body shops not previously served by the PPG LINQ solution, PPG says.

The PPG LINQ system delivers benefits including faster color-matching from any internet-connected device; less rework and no need for spray-out cards; faster and more efficient paint mixing; and waste reduction, when compared to a traditional repair process, according to PPG.
