Color-Proof Your Plastics Workflow

From inspiration through the final product, color accuracy across the entire supply chain is the optimal goal in the plastics industry. Color that does not meet specifications results in costly rework, longer time to market and unhappy customers. And since everyone sees color a little differently, evaluating color by eye is not the best approach.

From communicating color specifications to inspection of incoming raw materials, in-process work and final product, X-Rite has the tools, technologies and expertise that can help you color-proof your plastics workflow and make color communication between you and your customers more efficient.

To learn more about how you can revolutionize your plastics color workflow, spend two minutes watching the video. Then contact us to discuss your requirements and the solutions we can offer to color-proof your business.
