Sensegood spectrophotometer for color measurement and quality - consistency control in paints, coatings and pigments

Your every customer wants his products to be marketed in appealing colors. Memorable paints and ever lasting impression of a building, decorative paints for eye catching architecture or the aesthetic luxury of automotives; your customer knows the impact of getting the color right for building and retaining a brand.

We understand that there are many things that cannot go as expected. Variation in physical and chemical properties of ingredients, pigments and dyes, process variations and dispersion are some of the factors that affect the color consistency.

Benefits of using Sensegood spectrophotometer for accurate color measurement in paint industries:
  • Deliver accurate formulation of colorants to meet customer provided standards
  • Minimum production downtime
  • No repeat and reprocessing steps due to potential off-color
  • Tight color control on raw materials and ingredients
  • Reproduce each coating consistently: Achieving desired product color across all batches of production; be it solids, liquids, pastes or powders
  • Measure and convey color – Seamless management of color process across plants at multiple locations and global supply chain using SensegoodSmart utility
  • Researching toward product improvement: Study the effect of stabilizers on fading of paint – light and temperature stabilizers
  • Eliminate common visual errors caused by inadequate lighting or human estimate
  • Improve overall product quality
  • Process gets standardized – you know exactly how much colorant would be needed to bring a production batch of material on shade – no material wastage, can estimate required future raw material purchase
  • Instrumental color measurement and scientific approach to a production puts you in the leading line of paint manufacturers

Success in the paint and coatings industry relies heavily on innovation and the continual advancement of science and technology into new frontiers. As such, strategies for the adoption of new technologies directly impact the performance of companies involved in all aspects of the paint and coatings value chain.
