New development

Metameric-free colour series

MKT succeeded in eliminating metamerism problems with its newly developed colour series when switching from D65/simulated daylight to TL84/ simulated office-light.


ALPHA-TAPE® mit metameriefreien Farbserien / with metameric-free colour series


The in-house development was supported by a close and direct cooperation between MKT and PRINTEC. The PRINTEC GmbH is a subsidiary company of MKT specialized in printing inks and pigment preparations and situated in Ernstroda / Thuringia. This means that this new generation of colours is exclusively reserved for MKT.
So far, under D65 light standards colour-matched edges fitted the respective board sample perfectly. When changing the light to typical office lighting TL84, the colour of the board turned to shades of red. The colour of the edges in turn behaved differently. This effect is called metamerism. The reasons for metamerism are different light spectra of the respective types of light D65 (6500K) and TL84 (4000K), and above all, the technically related use of different colour pigments in the print base papers and in decorative printing. The newly developed colour series of MKT and PRINTEC, now in use with ALPHA-TAPE® edging, exactly follow the changes in the board surfaces.
 



Already finished – ready to use.
And metamerism free.

Our metamerism-free colour series are already used in producing ALPHA-TAPE® edge banding matching the current collections with major manufacturers of wood-based panels.
