Color Technology Solutions
We offer a wide range of professional color solutions to suit your needs.
Many industries need to color their products like paint with high color accuracy for their customers. Tough specifications need to be met with short lead times. Color technology and digitization are crucial for this process. We will guide you through the process of measurement, color adjustment and meeting tough specifications.
Several companies offer color measurement devices. Ranging from 50 to 100.000+ euro. We will help you to identify the right solutions for your needs. Since several years new cheap and accurate color measuring devices entered the market for certain purposes like choosing the right color from a color fan deck. At the other end of the instrument spectrum are high end spectrophotometers often necessary for tasks like multi angle measurement. For these type of instruments it is crucial to monitor them over time.
Does your staff need to pick up color technology fast? We have a one hour lecture to explain color reflectance curves from the start, gloss differences, color differences, metamerism and effect coatings. We also provide in depth customer attuned and optimized trainings on all aspects of color technology including the use of visual assessments.
Color Matching involves many aspects like pigment choices, optimizations for e.g. color difference, metamerism and of course costs. Current software programs optimize with sometimes incomprehensible methods. We can help you to identify the right optimum for these difficult problems. Especially for effect coatings where digitization is still developing we can help you to make the right choices.
