Color measurement in textile industry using Sensegood spectrophotometer

There are a number of variables that influence the apparent color of the final textile product. These include fiber variability, yarn and fabric constructions, and/or fabric wet processing techniques. For instance, cotton fibers have inherent variability in various fiber properties including fiber size, fiber length uniformity, fiber convolution count, and surface roughness. [1]

Sensegood spectrophotometer is the color measurement instrument that serves as a practical tool for textile color professionals. It supports reflectance measurement and related calculations as described in Instrumental Color Measurement by American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC). [2]

To build and maintain a brand of repute; product’s consistency is one of the most important parameter to be addressed. Using Sensegood spectrophotometer, you can ensure consistency and accuracy throughout your quality process by establishing color tolerances. A color tolerance is the acceptable difference in color between a sample and the standard.
