Clariant Pigments, Konica Minolta and matchmycolor Join Forces
Clariant Pigments, Konica Minolta and matchmycolor join forces to make color matching of Polyolefin products faster. The collaboration uses matchmycolor Colibri software and Konica Minolta’s instruments to increase user productivity & save costs.
Clariant has provided matchmycolor and Konica Minolta with the data set of 60 organic pigments from its PV Fast and Graphtol ranges in different concentrations in high density polyethylene (HDPE), to allow fast and precise color matching using Konica Minolta spectrophotometers. The consistently high quality pigments offer various technical properties for a wide variety of applications. The matchmycolor Colibri cloud-based software calculates color collections centrally in seconds and the recipes are available instantly for quick access globally to consistent data. The combined expertise of Clariant, matchmycolor and Konica Minolta makes it possible to accurately match a wide range of colors, from opaque to translucent and highly-transparent shades.
With this set of data, masterbatch producers and their customers can significantly reduce the number of laboratory and testing steps normally required to replicate a color, resulting in time savings, cost- and energy-savings, and high matching rates that improve the quality of the end result.
