BYK Instruments – The Objective Eye for Paint QC Solutions
Korte toelichting presentatie:
In contrast to solid colors, effect finishes change their color and appearance with viewing angle and lighting conditions. Metallic finishes show a lightness travel depending on viewing angle whereas pearlescent colors also create a color flop. Additionally, special effect pigments exhibit high sparkling effects under direct illumination.
In order to objectively describe the visual impression of effect finishes two different measurement principles are used. Effect finish appearance is highly influenced by different viewing angles and viewing conditions. In order to match the visual impression with the measurement results defined viewing angles and lighting conditions are needed.
