If you’re a coatings manufacturer, distributor, owner or manager of a paint brand you know there are so many factors to consider it can be rather frustrating. At Colour Genie we’re very good at helping solve the puzzle.
Whether you’re new to the industry or an old hand, the part we play is to work through your requirements, provide a tailor-made solution and support you along the way.
Let us give you some good examples –
For a specialist market there’s a lot of choice, so making the right choice is key. We provide advice on what machinery will best suit your requirements depending on the type of coatings you want to tint, the colorants you want to use, the volume of product you want to tint and the speed at which you need to process tinted product.
Linked to this are your software and database requirements, whether you’re starting from scratch or have a legacy of colour recipes you want to migrate, or a spectrophotometer you need to integrate we can assist.
Colorant technology continues to evolve, improving product performance and cost efficiency. Our core selection of water based and universal dispersions, for POS tinting machinery and in-plant dosing, are at the forefront of colorant technology.
But this isn’t the only route. Many customers have a legacy of using older colorant technologies which they are reluctant to switch from, particularly if they fear a change could lead to disruption. That is why we offer countertype colorants as an alternative, ‘pour-over’ dispersions that can be simply switched to. Quite commonly at a lower cost than the original, they have the same characteristics enabling you to use your existing colour recipe database.
Behind the product there’s a network of R&D support. As no two customers are the same, we tailor to suit your requirements. That could be providing a bespoke selection of colour recipes for a particular paint finish, full characterisation of a wide selection of bases, the transfer of an existing recipe database or the creation of a new one. Whatever the route you want to take we can guide you through it.

When Edoardo Rossetti founded Alfa in 2014, his vision based on over 50 years’ experience was to revolutionise the tinting process. Fast forward to 2019 and the Master System from Alfa is launched. Patented technology which removes the need for multiple tinting bases at point of sale, reducing base stock inventory by 50-80% (compared to a conventional 2 to 5 base system). A single base system which controls both the tint strength and colour at POS, preventing the excess use of both Titanium Dioxide and colourant typical to conventional multiple-base tinting systems. The result is materials cost savings of up to 15% and precise colour matching by using exactly the right quantity of combined TiO2 and colourant. Existing POS tinting systems can use the Master System in conjunction with an intermediate dosing module (Muletto) which provides the TiO2 and intermediates dosing into a single finish base.
If you want to transform your tinting offer, significantly rationalise your tinting SKU count and reduce excessive use of raw materials then contact us now at firstname.lastname@example.org
When used in conjunction with an existing POS colorant dispenser, the Muletto makes the Master System a reality. Through controlling the precise dispense of intermediate ingredients, namely the TIO2 slurry and fillers, the Muletto converts a single base into a strength-controlled base ready for the addition of colourant.
