Dupli-Color® Makes Winter Vehicle Protection Easy and Affordable With Scratch Fix 2in1™ Touch-Up Applicator

Innovative Tool Guarantees Perfect Color Match and Shields Rust-Causing Elements

CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwire - Sep 28, 2011) - According to recent research, 66 percent of vehicle owners are aware of a scratch, chip or nick on their vehicles, yet most have done nothing to repair the damage.* Unfortunately, research also shows that a scratch can rust in as little as 30 days, turning an easy fix into an expensive problem. As winter's rust-hastening conditions approach, Dupli-Color's innovative Scratch Fix 2in1™ touch-up paint applicator provides an easy-to-use solution that will protect any exposed metal and guarantee an exact color match.

Scratch Fix 2in1 features two tips -- a roller ball for precision and a taper brush for large area coverage -- to help any vehicle owner completely repair small damages at a fraction of the cost of a professional shop. Dupli-Color's exact-match color formulas ensure a seamless finish, and Scratch Fix 2in1 is available in more than 2,100 automotive manufacturer-approved colors. Owners can simply use the make, model and year of their vehicles to find their color code at the Scratch Fix e-store or national retail locations.

"Scratch Fix 2in1 is ideal for anyone whose vehicle has small chips, nicks or scratches -- and research shows this is most people," said Paulette Grimme, Dupli-Color brand manager. "And it's not only a cosmetic issue. These little damages can rust and cause big problems, especially during the harsh winter season. Scratch Fix 2in1 protects vehicles from the elements and will help owners avoid costly repairs down the road. Dupli-Color is known for its broad range of exact-match colors, so users can be confident they'll attain a professional finish."

Scratch Fix 2in1 is available online at Dupli-Color's eStore (www.duplicolor.com/scratchfix), as well as retailers including Advance Auto Parts, O'Reilly Auto Parts, AutoZone, Pep Boys, NAPA and Canadian Tire.
