ASTM D1729-96 Color Viewing Standard

Geometry The presence of excessive glare can be distracting to observers attempting to make critical color judgments. It is 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.

Light Evenness Even light intensity across the sample assures correct interpretation of color quality.

The values given in parentheses are for information only. 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 Kcool white fluorescent CWF and other sources as required, which include various types of fluorescent ast available to the industry.

ASTM D Color Viewing Standard

Chromaticity Chromaticity is the apparent color of a light source. This is the standard for visual appraisal of colors and color differences of diffusely illuminated opaque materials. Glare can influence color perception and result in very costly errors.

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

D50 is recommended for applications involving color photography or color printing as specified in ISO Surround Surround color and reflectance affect color appearance. The selection, evaluation, and training of observers are treated in Guide E The ASTM D viewing standard specifies the conditions for the critical visual color appraisal for color matching.

From our inception inGrafitec International Inc.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are f1729 provided as part of the standard. It is measured in the Kelvin temperature scale. The significance of the results depends on that being so.

In the graphic arts and photography industries, D50 is the standardized source and is referenced in ISO Such viewing conditions are beyond the scope dd1729 this practice. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

This standard provides a target intensity range designed to allow full tonal visibility of dark samples without overilluminating light samples. This practice requires judgments by observers with a minimum of normal color vision and preferably superior as rated with the FM Hue Test as specified in Guide E Likewise, the effects of geometric metamerism, if not taken into account in evaluation observations, will result in color mismatches.

This practice is widely used in industry to choose colors, exhibit colors reproducibility, inspect d17729 materials, monitor color producing processes, and inspect finished goods.

The standardization of visual examination has greatly improved the uniformity of products and c1729 accuracy of color matches. We offer each of the standard sources as well as most of the fluorescent sources. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

ASTM D Color Viewing Standard This is the standard for visual appraisal of colors and color differences of diffusely illuminated wstm materials.

The closer a light source’s spectral power distribution is to D50 the more accurate it is. These specifications are of critical importance in d172 matching.

In order to assure consistent color d1279 and tonal range, the surround condition is specified. Visual appraisal is particularly important when the product inspected is not of the same material as the color standard to which it is compared.
