Smithers use an X-Rite eXact standard handheld spectrophotometer fitted with a 2mm aperture to measure small area CMYK and spot colors.
The instrument measures CIE L* a* b* and CIE DE*, including CIE DE*2000, and satisfies the requirements of ISO 5-4: 2009 and ISO 13655: 2009.
Applications include assessing color fade on printed packaging after accelerated light exposure, abrasion resistance and color staining.
