Colors are an important part of the paints and coatings industry. It is used in car manufacturing, furniture, household products etc. Many challenges are faced to ensure the color quality of products. Accurate color measurement helps in cost savings through minimum production downtime, low rate of product scarp, removal of off-color product shipments and rework etc. The coating is used everywhere such as buildings, aircraft, signs, bridges etc. Coating formulations are different for different materials on which they are applied such as wood, plastic, metals etc. Each has a composition that needs a different coating system to get a color match. Accurate color standard and measurement tools are important to get these matches.
As the color portrays the quality of the product and inferior quality products are easily identified by the customers. Precision Color device is an effective tool to deliver high accuracy color measuring results to the users and ensure the best color quality given to the products. The paint and coating manufacturers must create high-quality coatings to provide the best appearance to the products. It can be achieved by evaluating the quality of color added to the paints and coatings at each and every level of production.
