Manufacturers in Plastic Industries continuously face rejections at the time of manufacturing due to the color consistency of the colors. Maintaining the color of the rigid plastics throughout the production process is the prime concern for the manufacturers to ensure the color quality of the products and to eliminate the possibilities of risks, wastage, and losses during the production process. The rigid plastics that do not pass the color quality issues during the production process can directly affect the businesses in terms of time and raw material wastage. Therefore, to maintain the color quality and consistency of the plastic products, manufacturers need to ensure the superiority of the products and need to ensure the consistent color appearance. There are numerous color testers that will be used in plastic industries to analyze the difference in the colors of the rigid plastics. The color consistency of the plastics can be measured easily using high-quality of Plastic color measurement instruments.

Color Testers – Best Color Solutions

Color testers are the widely used measuring devices that are used to evaluate the color value of the products in numerical format. Using color testers, the actual color of the plastics can be compared that easily passes the opinion of the human eye. The color measurement strategies of color testers help the manufacturers to measure the color consistency of different products during the production, molding of the products in order to remove the discrepancies at early stages to eliminate the chances of color flaws and defects. This helps the manufacturers to remove the chances of wastage and help them to generate more revenue.

Right from collecting the raw materials till the final products are produced, Testronix offers high-quality color testers along with the compatible software, relevant lighting solution and color spaces that are used to communicate the colors and help to meet the quality standards in the plastic industries. These testing solutions permit the customers to evaluate and control the color consistency, appearance, and color related properties of the rigid plastics like opaqueness, translucency, and transparency by following the highly streamlined process throughout the supply chain. Moreover, to diminish the rejections and wastages, the users can make use of color testers for high-quality and clear results.


How to use Color Testers to maintain color quality?


Manufacturers in Rigid Plastic products manufacturing industries all across the globe make use of high-quality of color testers to ensure the color and related properties of the products such as haze, transmittance, reflectance, whiteness, etc. The testing devices provide the color value of the products on the digital panel of the devices.

Applications of Color Tester in Plastic Industries

Color testers are used in plastic industries to measure the color of different products such as bottles, lenses, machine parts, cellophane sheets, pellets, plastic films, packaging materials, resins or plastic granules, and many more.

Types of Color Testers

Testronix Instruments offers a wide variety of color testers such as spectrophotometers, color measurement instruments, colorimeters, gloss meter, color matching cabinets and many more. Out of the range of color testers, one of the widely used instruments in plastic industries is TP 800 spectrophotometer.

Spectrophotometers are the testing devices that are used for the extruded plastic products. The testing devices help the manufacturers to estimate the actual color of the products during the production and development of the products that are used to ensure the color quality of the products.

These color devices read the color accurately under specific lights and store the data in the form of color code in the memory. In such cases, if any change in the color during the production is found it can be detected easily using the color testers and the original colors can be determined and compare using the color codes.

Key Benefits of Spectrophotometer – The Color Tester

The key benefit of TP 800 is its compatibility with software that helps the users to view the results in graphical formats on a computer display to save the records or to use it for future reference. The color tester is designed with a highly standardized color consortium and works on the set of guidelines for the production process to obtain the require color.

Secondly, the availability of the testers helps the manufacturers of plastic industries to measure the color consistency of different products accurately and efficiently.
