GTI to Feature its Innovative Color Matching Systems at Chinaplas 2018
GTI has announced that it will be showcasing its industry leading color matching solutions at the Chinaplas 2018 trade fair. Chinaplas takes place from April 24 – 27, 2018 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Hongqiao, Shanghai, PR China. GTI will be located in booth 5.2B77 and will be co-exhibiting with Shanghai Pancolor, one of GTI’s distribution partners in the region.
Robert McCurdy, GTI’s president states, “The Chinese market offers a significant growth opportunity for GTI. I am very excited to be traveling to Chinaplas and to be working with Shanghai Pancolor. Matching and inspecting color under standard lighting conditions is a key component of the quality control process for any product in which color is an important factor.” To achieve accurate color matching and communication compliance with industry standards is essential. All GTI products conform to the ASTM D1729, ISO 3668, SAE J361, AS 1580, BS-950, AATCC Procedure #9, TAPPI T-515, and TAPPI T-1212 standards.
“Visitors to our booth will see first-hand how light affects color and the value of matching color in standard lighting conditions. If all stakeholders in the supply chain are evaluating color in the same lighting conditions production costs can be reduced, faster customer approvals can be obtained, and fewer post production issues will occur. GTI’s color matching solutions provide an affordable solution that will enable users to easily create an industry compliant viewing area. We are pleased to be representing their products in China,” adds Frank Mo, Shanghai Pancolor’s managing director.
The following GTI color matching systems will be featured at Chinaplas 2018.
GTI ColorMatcher® Series
The GTI ColorMatcher series is designed to help you evaluate and communicate color with absolute confidence. Five different light sources provide an essential tool for visual color match assessment, comparison of color variation, and detection of metamerism. All CMB models comply with industry standards and are supplied with a certificate of product conformance (NIST traceable). Four models are available to accommodate nearly any sample size. The CMB-2540 is a perfect replacement model for a Spectralight viewing booth. A range of floor stand and storage options are also available.
GTI MiniMatcher® Series
The tabletop MiniMatcher series is ideal for the viewing of inks, coatings, consumer goods, packaging, and more. It is available in five standard models. The MM-1e and MM-2e provide three different light sources with UV or LED available as an option. The MM-4e, MM-2448e, and MM-2460e include five unique light sources with a built-in daylight timer and an illuminated push button control. All MiniMatchers conform to industry standards and are shipped with a certificate of product conformance (NIST traceable).
Color Rendition Demonstrator
The Color Rendition Demonstrator is a three-compartment viewer that demonstrates the color rendition of three varied light sources—fluorescent cool-white “store light”, 6500K fluorescent “daylight”, and incandescent “home light.” The Color Rendition Demonstrator allows you to easily educate your clients and vendors on how color is affected by different light sources.
Simultaneous Color Viewer
The Simultaneous Color Viewer is designed to help detect metamerism and test color harmony by allowing a visual side-by-side comparison of colors under four different light sources. Standard light sources are daylight (D65 or D50), LED (3500K), store light (4100K, CWF or TL84), and home light incandescent (CIE A). A UV light allows for the detection of optical brighteners, whitening agents, and fluorescent dyes and pigments. The spring loaded viewing platform allows for thicker materials to be easily viewed.
