Determination and control of color in plastic molding

more and more consumers are confused about the color of plastic products. How to scientifically describe and determine the color of products so as to eliminate personal "Prejudice" against color is a difficult problem for all plastic processors

today, the importance of accurately controlling the color of plastic products has been widely accepted. Formulaic color description and professional color control are all over the plastic industry. The advantages of digital color control are obvious. In most cases, the expected color of the product can be achieved through the least test

color digitization also plays an important role in quality control. It enables producers to establish an acceptable color tolerance, so that material manufacturers and mold suppliers can have a basis for the inspection of pigments, components, raw resin, etc. It also provides valuable data for the statistics of processing control system parameters, and minimizes the nonconformity of products caused by color deviation. The digital color control system can even help Plastic Processors deal with residual materials to achieve the specified color through the identification of color tags

therefore, establishing and maintaining a set of color standard system can make production and then adjust the range size according to the actual rough measurement results until the required products meet the requirements, reduce the test and production costs, and reduce rework and return. For example, in an automobile factory, quality control personnel must ensure that the components produced by various materials such as fabrics, plastics and textiles can be assembled together harmoniously and achieve the creativity expected by the designer, whether the surface of these components is smooth or textured

know color

it is impossible to understand how color is measured and controlled without understanding the essence of color. In life, color is a common element, and people are used to it. In fact, this is a complex phenomenon, involving many factors such as physics, psychology, individual experience and memory

color is the result of the interaction of light between the object and the observer, which is produced by the specific transformation of light by the object acting on the observer's color perception system. Objects can change the propagation of light in different ways. For example, a solid can reflect light, and a transparent object can pass through light. In fact, the light source itself is a variable. The unique effect of each specific object on different light forms the color of the object. For example, the rose is "red", not because it is born with a special "erythroid", but because it happens to reflect this kind of light defined as the red wavelength by the observer

color control of the whole supply chain

in the production of plastic parts, color control involves multiple suppliers, including pigments, resins, masterbatches, processing and molding and other links. The failure of color control at any stage may cause the color deviation of the final product. The establishment of digital color measurement system means that every link of the supply chain can use the same color language to communicate, and it also means that the color can be controlled at every step to make it within the allowable deviation

after understanding the above knowledge, we know that the key to color control is the basic composition of color - the determination of the absolute value of visible light wavelength. Without highly accurate instruments, it will be an impossible task. The instrument and the human eye receive "color" in the same way. They collect the light wave reflected by the object to be measured, measure the wavelength of the light and express it digitally. The difference is that there is no individual difference like human beings

about X-Rite's color management system

at present, more and more processors have begun to establish their own supply chain color management system. They choose X-Rite color management equipment and software to establish accurate color control standards and determine the allowable deviation of colors, and use the same instrument to detect colors in every link of the whole supply chain to ensure the consistency and accuracy of colors in the whole process
