Color Matching Value

For processors and brand owners, there is a wide range of factors that affect color. These include resin, additives, texture, shape, lighting conditions, usage environment, processing conditions and certainly human perception. In addition, there are many regulatory compliance issues and regulations, such as UL or FDA guidelines, that can impact the selection of pigments and dyes that are used to achieve an accurate color match.

Color matching is an important part of the product development effort and addressing all these issues requires experience and a broad line of product solutions. That’s why processors find it cost effective to work with the color experts at Plastics Color Corp.
