Sankt Augustin, 9 November 2015. RAL COLOURS from Sankt Augustin in Germany are expanding their product portfolio further. By launching the brandnew RAL COLORCATCH NANO – a colour measuring tool with worldwide innovative technology – the the product line of digital colour applications gets extended.

As the first colorimeter ever, RAL COLORCATCH NANO records up to five colours simultaneously, regardless of size and condition of the surface or material. The picture is enlarged to six times its size, while shadows and dirt are at the same time eliminated, thereby reaching highest precision in colour measurement. Because of the connection with the RAL App iCOLOURS, the closest RAL colour or a colour from another preselected colour collection appears on screen. The selected colour shade can then be directly transferred to a photographed object and shared via e-mail. This way, architects, painters, designers and the producing industry will work more professionally, time-saving and customer oriented.

Just like the App RAL iCOLOURS before, which now serves as a software for the new RAL COLORCATCH NANO, the device was developed in cooperation with the Swiss company Colorix. RAL COLORCATCH NANO is compatible with many different apple and android devices. Further information can be found here.
