  • Hobart Paint Colors

    I am building a trailer and need the colors for my Hobart Champion welder to paint the trailer.

    I was wondering if I were to get a [Hobart] price tag off of a welder at the store, could I use those colors to get paint mixed and be close to the real thing?

    I want to create a Hobart theme with the entire trailer so the paint matching is pretty important.



    Tumbling down the road at 35 MPH is no fun, TRUST ME!

    IF the printed tag does indeed match the real paint color AND the paint guys can scan it, it should be close.

    Hobart might be able to tell you more specifically what the colors are, at least the printed colors used for literature (Pantone color or CYMK or RGB, whatever.)

      Don't bother messing with paint numbers or codes. I just bought a gallon of PPG Urotec AU-100 to paint my weld cart "Miller blue". When I put all my toys side by side, a Syncro 350, a Coolmate 3, a Syncro 180SD, and a MM 135; they all were a slightly different shade. I liked the shade of my MM135 the best of the four, and took the door to my local PPG Industrial jobber. For $60, I got a gallon of the Urotec plus catalyst, color matched to my MM 135.

      The Urotec paint is MUCH better than anything else that you could use, especially a trailer, as it is an Acrylic Urethane, not an enamel.

      I suspect that if you went off a paint code, you might not end up with a really close match.

          Jeff,

          I can’t find UROTEC AU-100 on the PPG web site. Can you help me out with any additional info?

              Are these colors moody?

                Pantone might be widely used in printing and publishing type stuff, but when I repainted my Bobcat I took that Miller Pantone code to the local PPG automotive paint supplier and they said "PanWHAT? What do you expect us to do with THAT?"

                They matched it using their camera system and got close enough to satisfy me. The machine is sitting next to my factory painted Syncrowave and I can't see any difference except in certain light.

                  I did the same thing.... My local supplier used the camera to match the paint and it came out VERY close, again, in certain light you can tell but that doesn't happen often.

                      That doesn't surprise me. It shouldn't be that hard since Sherman Williams (or any other paint vendor) has to know the Pantone Matching System code so the printer gets the color chips right. So if they know the PMS code to print chips how hard is it to put the PMS code in the computer.

                      You're right, a scanned match will be better as it takes in to account fading and other variations.

                        Sorry, I typed it wrong. It's AUE-100.
