ST. PAUL, Minn. (November 3, 2015) – One of the most difficult challenges in collision repair shops today is achieving the perfect color match, particularly on curved panels.

Now, 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division have revolutionized color matching with a simple, but innovative, solution -- new 3M™ PPS™ Color Match Film that is applied directly to the vehicle and allows the painter to evaluate the colors from any angle and distance.
