Clariant has developed a calibration database of its PV Fast and Graphtol pigments that can easily be integrated into matchmycolor’s colibri software and used together with the premium grade portable and bench-top spectrophotometers from Konica Minolta to colour-match polyolefin articles.
Unveiled at the recent K 2016 exhibition, the collaboration will benefit masterbatch producers and compounders, as well as designers and brand owners looking to ensure finished products carry exactly the same colour – from opaque to translucent and highly-transparent shades – all over the world.
The colour matching service brings direct sustainability advantages to the plastics industry by reducing the traditional time- and cost-consuming sequence of creating a colour calibration data set.
Clariant has provided matchmycolor and Konica Minolta with the dataset of 60 organic pigments from its PV Fast and Graphtol ranges in different concentrations in high-density polyethene (hdpe), to allow quick and precise colour matching using Konica Minolta spectrophotometers.
The matchmycolor colibri cloud-based software calculates colour collections centrally in seconds and the recipes are available instantly for fast access globally to consistent data.
