Chromaticity Chromaticity is the apparent color of a light source. This standard provides a target intensity range designed to allow full tonal visibility of dark samples without overilluminating light samples.

In the aatm arts and photography industries, D50 is the standardized source and is referenced in ISO Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Aastm appraisal is particularly important when the product inspected is not of the same material as the color standard to which it is compared.

ASTM D Color Viewing Standard

This practice is widely used in industry to choose colors, exhibit colors reproducibility, inspect incoming materials, monitor color producing processes, and inspect finished goods.

D50 is recommended for applications involving color photography or color printing as specified adtm ISO The standardization of visual examination has greatly improved the uniformity of products and the accuracy of color matches.

ASTM D Color Viewing Standard This is the standard for visual appraisal of colors and asfm differences of diffusely illuminated opaque materials. The ASTM D viewing standard specifies the conditions for the critical visual color appraisal for color matching.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

It asgm the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. It is measured in the Kelvin temperature scale.

ASTM D1729-96 Color Viewing Standard

The selection, evaluation, and training of observers are treated in Guide E This is the standard for visual appraisal of colors and color differences of diffusely illuminated opaque materials.

The closer a light source’s spectral power distribution is to D50 the more accurate it is. This practice requires judgments by observers with a minimum of normal color vision and preferably superior as rated with the FM Asrm Test as specified in Guide E Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. These specifications are of critical importance in color matching. Such viewing conditions are beyond the scope of this practice.

An equally important function of the standard is to allow effective communication of color between parties working together on color critical projects. Daylight The true “fingerprint” of a light source, spectral power distribution is the key factor in how a light source renders colors.

Surround Surround color and reflectance affect color appearance.

Geometry The presence of excessive glare can be distracting to observers attempting to make critical color judgments. Additional Light Sources Metamerism Various light sources are described in the ASTM D viewing standard, including artificial daylight D50, D65 and D75incandescent specifically illuminant A and a light source at Kd7129 white fluorescent CWF and other sources as required, which include various types of fluorescent lamps available to the industry.

We offer each of the standard sources as well as most of the fluorescent sources. Light Evenness Even light intensity across the sample assures correct interpretation of color quality. Light Intensity Consistent light intensity is critical to consistent color evaluation. Glare can influence color perception and result in very costly errors. The significance of the results depends on that being so.

From our inception inGrafitec International Inc. In order to assure consistent color appearance and tonal range, the surround condition is specified. Likewise, the effects of geometric metamerism, if not taken into account in evaluation observations, will result in color mismatches.
