Features of Testronix color matching cabinet- Asia

The color of materials depends on the geometric and special nature of the illuminating and viewing condition. This practice specifies the standard condition for appraising the colors and color differences of opaque specimens that are diffusely illuminated. Thus, you can easily match the consistency of colors under different light sources with Testronix color matching cabinet- Asia.

Below we have created a list of its features.

  • The equipment offers controlled and reproducible lighting conditions.There is a wide viewing area available in this testing instrument.Suitable for all applications, that demands color consistency and quality.It makes use of multiple light sources or lamps to detect the phenomenon of Metamerism.Various light sources include artificial daylight, cool white light, tungsten filament light,Ultraviolet blacklight, Triphosphor light.Gives you accurate testing results of color consistency.

These are the features of Testronix color matching cabinet-Asia. Now let us focus on its technical specifications.

Steps to commence test using Testronix color matching cabinet

If you want to test your product color consistency then we suggest you follow the below-mentioned steps. These steps will let you get accurate testing results.

  • Place the material at the bottom of a viewing booth at the distance from the illuminator required to obtain the specific luminance. The specimen should be viewed at a distance of 450 to 600mm (18” to 24”).
  • When viewing a glossy surface, it is necessary to avoid seeing the light source secularly reflected by the surface. This may be accomplished by illuminating along the normal to the surface and viewing at 45° C to the normal or illuminating at 45°.
  • The INCA Light consists of four incandescent bulbs. Assessment should be done under filament lighting to ensure that the two samples are still matching. It is this light under which Metamerism is detected. If the match is satisfactory, proceed on to the next light.
  • The U.V. Light switch should now be put ON to enable tests to be carried out under ultra–violet light. With the widespread use of fluorescent dyes and brighteners, it is necessary to ascertain if both samples react equally to ultra–violet radiation. It is often found particularly in the case of white samples the U.V.B. Light clearly indicates the presence of fluorescent dyes and bleaches.
  • A final test under TL-84 Triphosphor Fluorescent lamp is carried to ascertain if the colors are acceptable at the ‘Point of Sale’.
  • If the matching of both the samples holds well under all the lights. It means that the Dyeing, Printing, and coloring of the sample are as per the requirement.
