COLOR MATCHING / DEVELOPMENT
Precision and accuracy are the cornerstones in designing a wide range of colors by our expert technical team with proficiency and experience in color matching. Their expertise when coupled with an updated software version of a sophisticated technology creates unparalleled results. A pilot plant with complete compounding facilities for various base polymers (PE, PP, PS, ABS, SAN, PET, PBT, PMMA, PA, PC, Soft PVC) is also situated in the technical laboratory to produce small quantities of our newly developed and existing masterbatch for submission to customers at the shortest possible time. Different types of plastic molding machines are available in the same site to replicate possible customer’s application processes like injection, blow and injection-stretch-blow, film and cast film for a more accurate checking of our products. In addition to this, we have spinneret machine for fibre applications.
Our Sales and Marketing teams can be coordinated for specific color requirements. Important data such as the application process, base resin, desired letdown ratio, chemical resistance and heat resistance specifications, light fastness conditions with the type of end product exposure and food grade approval requirements from the customers etc. should be furnished before proceeding with the product development.
Color Measurement Overview
The apparent color of a substance is directly related to its spectral characteristics, which are specified by reflectance (or transmittance) as a function of wavelength. The spectrophotometer measures the spectral characteristics of a material at each wavelength in the visible spectrum then sends these data to the computer through a cable. The software then calculates all other important values based on the spectral reflectance data. The difference in absolute color coordinates between a trial and a standard quantifies the color difference between the two. These differences are called Deltas, which may be positive, or negative that has an effect on their interpretation. Color consistency is guaranteed by our quality control department with the generation of our quality control reports from the spectrophotometer.
