Spot Colour Measurement

We are able to test colour quality relating to fading, staining and abrasion resistance, identify the causes surrounding these problems and providing solutions to keep you moving forward.

Smithers Pira use an X-Rite eXact standard handheld spectrophotometer fitted with a 2mm aperture to measure small area CMYK and spot colours.

The instrument measures CIE L* a* b* and CIE DE*, including CIE DE*2000, and satisfies the requirements of ISO 5-4: 2009 and ISO 13655: 2009.

Applications include assessing colour fade on printed packaging after accelerated light exposure, abrasion resistance and colour staining.
