Appearance

As material suppliers strive to create eye-catching product palettes, appearance attributes like color, gloss, and shimmer effects are becoming increasingly complex. Since appearance impacts overall color, it is crucial to account for these attributes in paints, plastics, metals, fabrics, and meshes at the design stage to successfully produce a visually accurate product. X-Rite’s solutions for appearance measurement capture and present digital materials in a physically precise way to streamline the product design process, reduce approval cycles, and accelerate speed to market.
