Company Overview

Matrix Automotive Finishes was established as a company dedicated to developing high performance, affordable refinishing products that performed as well as or better than the leading national brands. Since then Matrix has grown to become a top ranked manufacturer of high quality clearcoats, primers, hardeners, and reducers.

Shortly thereafter Matrix spent five years of researching and developing what is now known as the Matrix AccuShade® Intermix Paint System. The introduction of this system introduced Matrix into the world of color. The advancement of the AccuShade® Formula Retrieval System along with domestic and import color books and a high performance line of toners and pearls, deliver color match capabilities and performance equal to the world's leading paint systems at 20% - 50% savings.

Since bursting onto the national scene, Matrix has been selling its AccuShade® Intermix Paint Systems, FX Series custom colors, clears, primers, and reducers to over 400 Jobbers and thousands of body shop customers. The AccuShade® Intermix System now leads the product line, giving body shops the ability to produce over 200,000 colors with exact formulas. It has been estimated that Matrix basecoat colors have been sprayed on over one million vehicles with accurate color match and excellent performance. Commitment to developing, manufacturing, and shipping high quality, automotive finishes in a manner that minimizes environmental impact is a major goal of Matrix. The company's manufacturing facilities are ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 certified, meeting international product quality and environmental standards.
