Color and appearance metrology facility

Metadata Updated: March 8, 2017

The NIST Physical Measurement Laboratory has established the color and appearance metrology facility to support calibration services for 0[HTML_REMOVED]/45[HTML_REMOVED] colored samples, 20[HTML_REMOVED], 60[HTML_REMOVED], and 85[HTML_REMOVED] specular gloss samples, research in the colorimetric characterization of gonioapparent including a new standards for metallic coatings and calibrated photographic and x-ray step tablets.Instruments and capabilities:Reference 0:45 reflectometer - The primary purpose of the 0:45 reflectometer is to disseminate color standards to the color and appearance community. The instrument...Goniophotometer for specular gloss calibrations - Specular gloss is the perception by an observer of the mirror-like appearance of a surface. The measurement of specular gloss consists...Five-axis goniometer for BRDF measurements - Manufacturers are creating pigments with new and unique appearance attributes. For example, gonioapparent materials such as metallic and...Reference transmittance densiometer (RDT) - The Reference Transmission Densitometer (RTD) is the national reference instrument for standard diffuse visual transmittance density measurements...
