Helios group is following new technologies, strict environmental demands and new trends, mainly with the environment friendly coatings.

A challenge to all modern tinting systems is to have a wide color palette as fast as possible. Therefore, within the Helios group the BW MIX system was developed to enable desired flexibility and independency to mix and match color shades.

Appropriate TINTING package is being assembled according to the customer wishes and the legislation valid for a specific market.

Selection of colorants and the appropriate bases is made according to their characteristics and mixing volumes and the suitable automatic dispenser with software and formulations is recommended.

Besides TINTING package, we are carrying out the practical educations together with full service which includes setting up the mixing machine (dispenser and shaker) with calibration, yearly update of formulations and development of custom-made recipes.
