How to correlate visual and instrumental evaluation
of effect finishes?

Effect finish appearance is influenced by different viewing angles and illumination conditions. Metallic finishes show a lightness travel depending on viewing angle whereas pearlescent colours also create a colour flop. Special effect pigments exhibit high sparkling effects under direct illumination. In order to match the visual impression with the instrumental measured results defined viewing angles and lighting conditions are needed. Attend the webinar to learn more!

In only 60 minutes you will learn how to ensure objective evaluation of the total colour impression of effect finishes:

  • How to ensure a proper geometry for viewing the specimen?
  • Which angles are needed to determine colour differences of metallic colours?
  • What is needed to determine visually the colour flop of pearlescent finishes?
  • How can different lighting conditions be simulated in a light booth?
