Fit4PaintBASF has become the exclusive global supplier to Fit4Paint, BMW’s private label paint-related products (PRP) offering.

Fit4Paint is a portfolio of protection, cleaning, sanding, masking, mixing and painting, and polishing accessories put together by paint experts that can easily meet the specific needs of BMW painters and is perfectly aligned with BMW’s ColorSystem paint portfolio.

This agreement, which runs for two years, is exclusive to BMW authorized dealers and body shops in 18 countries (Germany, Austria, Spain, Portugal, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Czech Republic, Romania, Hungary, Russia, South Africa, Japan, Korea, Slovakia, Slovenia), offering ordering, consultation and service for paint and paint-related products from a single source provided by BASF Coatings. This ensures optimum integration into the existing BMW ColorSystem service and training concept, and access to a comprehensive, customizable product portfolio, BASF says.

BASF became the exclusive coatings partner for BMW’s ColorSystem refinish system in EMEA early last year until 2022 with option to extend for another two years.

The two companies have collaborated for more than 36 years in the refinishing sector. With the Fit4Paint portfolio, BASF offers an advanced and dynamic portfolio of paint-related products, covering the entire paint and cosmetic repair process, including workplace safety and health protection, the company says.

“BMW body shops utilize the full suite of training, advanced business management solutions including audits and digital color management to ensure their teams stay ahead,” says Martina Fischer, Global Strategic Account Manager BMW Group, BASF Automotive Refinish Solutions Europe. “Fit4Paint seamlessly completes the offer for the body shop with OEM recommended paint accessories which assures a higher and safer standard of refinish work.”

New Bacharach Sling Psychrometer


CFCM slingpsychrometer 400Paul N. Gardner USA, global distributors, producers, and designers of quality physical and inspection instruments for the paint, coatings, and related industries, has introduced a new offering: The compact, portable Sling Psychrometer.

As an easy way to measure relative humidity levels quickly, this uniquely compact Bacharach Sling Psychrometer accurately determines per cent relative humidity without the necessity of consulting complex tables. There is no need to wet the wick each time a reading is taken, and it contains a slide rule calculator which correlates wet and dry bulb thermometer indications for direct reading of relative humidity. When not in use, the thermometer case telescopes into the handle for protection.

The Sling Psychrometer consists of two thermometers that are turned by vigorously swinging the handle and exposing the thermometers to rapid air movement. These two thermometers are called dry bulb and wet bulb. The bulb of one thermometer is placed in direct contact with the room air to measure dry-bulb air temperature. The bulb of the other thermometer is covered with a silk or muslin sleeve that is kept moist to record the wet bulb temperature. Evaporation cools the wet bulb more than the dry bulb, and the humidity is obtained as a function of change in temperature. The atmospheric humidity is determined by calculations, steam tables, or using a psychrometric chart. Gardco.com
