Colour control and digital colour data communication for sealants and adjacent products
A CM-36dG and the Colibri® platform can be used to build a database of wood shades based on averaging measurements. The colour data generated can be used to formulate wood fillers in both matching and contrasting colours. By setting tolerances from production samples, the Colibri® system can also be used over time for quality control measurements of production, ensuring batch to batch consistency.
By taking a sample from production at specified intervals and applying it to a draw down card, the sample can be quickly and easily measured against the target colour data to check that production is within tolerance. The minimal contact of the portable spectrophotometer CM-700d will provide useful data whilst also easier to clean up as only the aperture plate need be in contact with the sample.
Digital colour data represents an opportunity working in the supply chain for items such as front doors, windows and fitted furniture. By formulating colour to specification, agreeing tolerances and communicating colour in a clear and transparent way, a provider of sealants and adhesives can work collaboratively. By providing colour as a service with clear processes, producers can reduce subjective disagreements, deepen supply chain relationships and add value.
