The updates are based on the Thatcham paint materials prices. Previously Glassmatix updated the prices every six months. EurotaxGlass’s, the company behind Glassmatix, has also confirmed that the Glassmatix Paint Calculator will be dropped from the product range in 2006, but that the Refinished Area Paint Calculation feature will continue to be available.
“To ensure the accuracy of estimates, repairers must be able to rely on rapid access to the latest parts and paint data,” says Iain Burkinshaw, business development manager at EurotaxGlass’s. “This facility will ensure estimates reflect the latest prices, as soon as a paint manufacturer notifies Thatcham.”
