Easy step-by-step procedure to conduct a colour-matching test on the materials

If you want to conduct a colour-matching test on the materials then you need to follow the step-by-step procedure mentioned below.

  • Plugin the mains lead to an electrical socket of 3 pin-5 Amp configuration.

  • Put ON the “Main On” Switch from the Control Panel.

  • Place the material at the bottom of a viewing booth (sample test area) at the distance from the illuminator required to obtain the specific luminance. The specimen should be viewed at a distance of 450mm to 600mm (18” to 24”).

  • When viewing a glossy surface, it is necessary to avoid seeing the light source directly reflected by the surface. This may be accomplished when the sample is viewed at 45°.

  • Now turn ON the required light to see the colour difference between the master and sample. This will help to detect Metamerism.

  • If the matching of both the samples holds well under all the lights. It means that the Dyeing, Printing and colouring of the sample are as per the requirement.

In this way, you can easily create a colour-matching test on the materials and ensure Metamerism-free products.
