Step-by-step guide on how to use a color-matching cabinet for flexible film colour testing

Using a colour-matching cabinet is an essential tool for accurately testing the colour of flexible films. This specialized lab testing instrument allows you to control the lighting conditions and is considered to be the best solution to solve the problem of Metamerism.

  • Once you receive the machine, you need to prepare the sample take a sample and cut a specific area from it that the user needs to test.

  • Take a Master and a sample and place it side by side on the 45o angle fixture.

  • Now fix the sample on the steel angle fixture using magnets (provided with the instrument). 

  • Turn the machine ON & place the material at the bottom of a viewing booth (sample test area) at the distance from the illuminator required to obtain the specific luminance. The specimen should be viewed at a distance of 450mm to 600mm (18” to 24”).

  • When viewing a glossy surface, it is necessary to avoid seeing the light source directly reflected by the surface. This may be accomplished when the sample is viewed at 45°.

  • Now turn ON the required light to see the color difference between the master and the sample. This will help to detect Metamerism. If the matching of both the samples holds well under all the lights. It means that the Dyeing, Printing and colouring of the sample are as per the requirement.

In this way, you can easily conduct colour-matching tests on the materials. If you want more information about the use of this testing instrument, then you can give us a call at +91-9210 903 903 or email us at Our team of technical experts will consult you regarding all your needs and queries.
