The Game Changer – more than 500 leather colours in your pocket!

What is the biggest problem with repairing leather? We asked our customers and received the same reply over and over again: How can I manage mixing the right and fitting leather colour? Until now, the answer (and the challenge to the craftsman) was: a solid training, a keen eye for colours and lots and lots of mixing experience.

This will no longer be an issue - introducing the ColourScannerPRO!

The ColourScannerPRO is a very compact, Bluetooth®-tethered tool for formula selection which enables you to scan leather colours and immediately view fitting formula suggestions – making colour mixing a breeze.

The device will be calibrated by us and comes readily supplied with our up-to-date formula database, containing more than 500 colours from the automotive and furniture sector. We are continuously working on expanding this selection (aiming for 5,000 colours), steadily improving measuring precision.

Simply use your mobile phone (iOS and Android alike) to measure leather colours, to receive mixing suggestions or to create new formulas.

Often the suggested colour – prepared by means of a precision scale – will fit on the first try, but can in case easily be corrected using complementary colours and the provided colour wheel.

How to proceed

• Activate the scanner and connect it to your mobile phone via the ColourWatchPRO app.
• Inside the app, select the menu item „Match“.
• Place the scanner, bottom side first, tightly on the leather surface of interest and press the black measuring button.
• You will receive a formula for 100 grams, which you can then proceed to mix, use for spray tests and, if applicable, correct further.


• Be sure to avoid light reflection from the side which will lead to misreadings. The scanner should always contact the leather vertically and without any gaps.
• Measurements are calibrated to mat leathers. In case of very glossy surfaces, the suggested formula will show the tendency to be too dark.
• The formulas are based on the assumption that colours will be sprayed on using an airbrush gun. Applying the colours with a sponge or brush will yield too dark results because the colour layer will be too thick. This has to be corrected with the help of the colour wheel.
• The app will provide the deviation between the colour read and the best formula (value DeltaE). This value should normally be below 1.5. For unusual colours or larger deviations, the suggested formula can always be taken as a point of orientation, but in most cases, a manual correction will be necessary.
