Color matching is one of the most important aspects of coating manufacturing. Cortec’s High Performance Coatings Division strives to consistently provide customers with paint that matches their color specification through the use of industry standard measurement equipment. Color is measured using spectrophotometry and usually involves determining the Black/White, Red/Green, and Blue/Yellow spectrums. Typical parameters such as color and gloss deviation are agreed upon prior to providing finished paint in order to ensure customer satisfaction. The goal is to consistently tint the paint as close as possible to the standard so the customer’s equipment will always have the same color.*
