AZT Paint Calculation Update United Kingdom
Status: April 22nd, 2016
Since its introduction in 1977 the AZT paint calculation system has become the leading international standard for manufacturer independent calculation of paint jobs. Today it is applied in more than 35 countries worldwide and still expanding.
The materials and methods currently used for repairer paint jobs are the basis of the AZT paint calculation system. New vehicle models are regularly added to the system and values are updated frequently. New materials and methods are examined and are taken into account in accordance with their marketing importance.
In order to ensure quality, consistency across all markets and to reflect the material mix and procedures used in current refinishing practice we have updated our paint calculation system with UK implementation planned 1 July 2016.
The update will include a number of changes to the paint calculation, e.g.
- recognising the increasing use of plastic, affecting:
- material costs
- preparation times/sundry materials
- updated mix and match times
- re-baselining the paint tables to align the paint calculation worldwide
