Which color system is the best?

A  question with not just one answer!

Color control has historically been done by visually inspecting the samples and comparing them to a standard. The disadvantage of this process is its subjectivity. In 1976, the internationally agreed upon CIEL*a*b* system was adopted for more objectivity. Since then, several modifications of the CIEL*a*b* color equation like ΔE*CMC, ΔE*94, ΔE*2000 were introduced. The goal of the modifications was to improve the correlation between visual perception and instrumentally measured values. In this seminar, you will find out the strong and weak points of the different color equations with typical applications.

In 60 minutes, you will be able to decide what is the best solution for your application:

  • L*,a*,b* or L*,C*,H* Tolerances
  • ΔE*- can a single number be used for all colors?
  • Visual assessment of colors
  • CIELAB – ΔE*CMC – ΔE*94 –  ΔE*2000
  • Prerequisites for acceptable Color Tolerances
