The Benefits of Measuring Colors Chroma Meter Automotive InteriorSpectrophotometers, colorimeters or chroma meters measure colors.   The color data are expressed in numbers of a color space like CIE L*a*b* and therefore the benefits of measuring colors are:

  • Research and Development
  • Precise Color Communication
  • Color Library
  • Quality
  • Improve Yield
  • Productivity
  • Trend Analysis
  • Shade Sorting

The above benefits of measuring colors are done with CIE L*a*b* and L*C*h color spaces.  The color spaces provide color numbers that are useful for analysis.  Whiteness Index ASTM E313, Whiteness Index CIE, Yellowness Index ASTM E313, Yellowness Index ASTM D1925 etc are single color indices hence are useful for color work too.  The color numbers are used too for precise color communication between a supplier and client relationship.  Read this white paper on controlling surimi colors to get an insight on the benefits of measuring color.
