Color-Helper device aids color matching

The Color-Helper is designed to aid in the color selection process for integral coloring or color staining.

Now being marketed to the decorative concrete industry, the easy-to-use tool’s primary function is its ability to read a surface and identify colors that are a close match. When looking to find a match to an existing color, be it on an existing wall, ceramic tile or other colored sample, simply hold this hand-held device onto the surface for two seconds and it will search through its database of known colors to find the closest possible matching reference to your favored stain or pigment supplier.

The Color-Helper comes preloaded with palettes from major suppliers such as New Look International, Davis Colors, L.M. Scofield Co. and Solomon Colors, and even includes palettes from major paint companies such as Sherwin- Williams, Valspar and Behr. Color collections can be custom formulated.

Additionally, with one press of a button the device will let you know if any two colors should not be used together, and it provides a list of alternative colors that you might prefer to use. “Compare” mode helps you measure in what way colors may be different so you can avoid subjective arguments.

The Color-Helper was developed by Color Savvy and may be updated by computer. Software for the device enables downloads of all available manufacturers’ databases as well as “Hue View” software that displays color matches and color schemes on a PC screen.
