The company has dedicated specific lab and manufacturing capacity at its headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA to color matching capabilities, development and manufacturing of ColorCoat.

ColorCoat can be matched to GCMI™ and Pantone™ standards as well as non-standard colors. It is also available in gold, silver and bronze in both gloss or matte finish. Michelman’s use of computerized and visual color matching techniques ensures a high level of matching accuracy.
