Why is a Color Evaluation Box important?

October 29, 2022by Kalstein

The importance of a color evaluation box, allows you to evaluate and show the appearance of the products, as well as,ย to identify notable inconsistencies between the color of a sample and the standard color, in order to order the human visual perception with the numeric values of color.

Early color assessment in production environments usually helps minimize double work and future out-of-pocket costs.ย Before each sensory assessment, samples to be evaluated should be established, if necessary, prepared and presented in the same way, each time

Similarly, the color evaluation box, can be applied to industries that need to perform color difference testing, as follows, as the leading designer and manufacturer of color matching instrument products for graphic arts, photography, textile, dyeing, packaging, printing, leather, inks, knitting, plastic, automotive and ceramics industries.

Importance of Perception in a Color Evaluation Boxย 

Fundamentally, color is appreciated under the sensitivity of the human eye, and it varies from person to person, often causing color to appear different in each individual, and even perception can affect how the color of the sample is perceived. Thus, as it appears, it can affect the appearance of its color. Because seeing an object at a slightly different angle, for example, can make the object appear brighter or darker. Because of this, the angle at which the specimen and other visual conditions are seen, should be consistent at every assessment. It is therefore recommended that:

  • Do not place any other objects in the evaluation box that intrude with the appearance of the color.
  • Place samples flat within the box or at a 45ยฐ angle, shifting position from left to right and up and down, to observe any change in color.
  • Hold the samples in parallel so that differences in color can be identified.

Color Evaluation Boxes Settingsย 

Within the mechanisms of an evaluation box, facilitates the importance of color, since it is one of the most important characteristics of an object, and the evaluation of the object must be adequate and precise in the samples.

The configuration of the box is very important, because it allows to form two or three illuminants, which are suggested for the evaluation of metamerism, these being D65 (Daylight), F2 (fluorescent light) and, A (incandescent light).

As a result, the images illuminated with D65, radiates more energy in the region of the blues, in the case of the illuminant F2 (cold white light), more energy is radiated in the region of the yellows and finally the illuminant A (incandescent), radiates more energy in the region of the reds.

The configuration of the equipment is important, if you are making an application of raw material and you are only looking to evaluate the color, without taking into account the effect of the appearance, then you must configure the box, in a specular mechanism to measure the color, without considering the appearance of finishing it.ย
