Spectrophotometers measure reflected or transmitted light across the visible spectrum and create a visual curve that describes a color. This spectral data helps ensure color is consistent across varying substrates and production processes.
X-Rite’s color measurement solutions take into account the new business needs and dynamics of a global supply chain. Our spectrophotometers enable those in the printing, automotive, plastics and paint industries to truly understand, control, manage and communicate color across their entire color network.
Spherical devices for textured surfaces
A sphere spectrophotometer can measure textiles, carpets, wood and plastics, as well as shiny or mirror-like surfaces, including metallic inks, printing over foil, and other highly glossy surfaces. They are versatile because they can measure color without the impact of the substrate’s surface effects, and the measurement results are very close to what the human eye sees.
0º/45º (or 45º/0º) instruments for smooth or matte surfaces
A 0º/45º spectrophotometer removes the gloss from the measurement dynamics to capture accurate color values. No instrument “sees” color more like the human eye than the 0º/45º spectrophotometer.

Multi-Angle spectrophotometers for special effect colors.
A multi-angle instrument is able to measure colors that shift when viewed from different angles, such as specialty coated pigments and paint finishes with special additives like mica, pearlescent materials, and ground-up seashells. X-Rite’s portable multi-angle instruments are used by most automakers and their colorant supply chains around the world.
