Audatex can confirm that we will be updating our paint material tables effective 19th April 2017 for our online users. We will update our offline users as part of our D4.45 data release.
The impact of the detailed data supplied by the paint manufacturers is an indicative average increase of 4.5% on the calculated paint and materials. These calculations are based upon updated paint material tables represented by the basket of paint brands used in our system.
Please note that this is an indicative percentage for guidance purposes only, as the actual increase per job, will depend on a number of factors including the specific paint operations (e.g. new part, surface, repair), paint type, and the surface to be prepared/painted (e.g. metal vs. plastic).
