Colour matching explained..

Colour Matching

 

Mother Nature really knew what she was doing with her colour pallet. Our planets ecosystem is a rich tapestry made up of wonderfully blended colours – we enjoy stunning light blue skies, rich green rainforest’s, golden sanded desserts, deep blue seas and magnificent vanilla skied sunsets. Within our environment all manner of creatures are using vivid colours to set themselves apart. Some use colour to defend themselves, some to show off their vibrancy to attract the best partners to grow the strongest offspring.

 

Here at Forgeway we also know what we are doing with our colour pallet, and we can offer a powerful kaleidoscope of colours to our partners.

 

For us at Forgeway matching colour is a source of pride, we match all of our adhesives to common standard colours within the European RAL standardisation reference system, and have the ability to match bespoke colours to suit your business needs whatever they maybe. This is made possible as we utilise CIE L*a*b* technology.

 

The CIE L*a*b* scale is successfully used across many sectors of industries with great confidence in its reliability. The scale communicates colour values based on ‘opponent colour theory’ – each value is based on pairs of opposite colours which amalgamate to form the visually perceived colour. The L scale measures white vs black, the a scale red vs green & the b scale yellow vs blue.

 

Not only does the use of the CIE L*a*b* scale ensure the correct colour is produced it also protects against metamerism.  This is the visual effect caused by observing colour in different lights i.e. a colour can look different inside a building under common ‘yellow light’ bulbs, compared to when it is taken outside into natural day light. The CIE L*a*b* data shows a colour match to be true.

 

If you are interested in creating or enhancing your application colours to stand out from the crowd, be instantly recognisable, and show off your business vibrancy, Forgeway are on hand.
