D50 is recommended for applications involving color photography or color printing as specified in ISO Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Surround Surround color and reflectance affect color appearance. The ASTM D viewing standard specifies the conditions for the critical visual color appraisal for color matching.

Glare can influence color perception and result in very costly errors. Daylight The true “fingerprint” of a light source, spectral power distribution is the key factor in how a light source renders colors. Such viewing conditions are beyond the scope of this practice. These specifications are of critical importance in color matching. Geometry The presence of excessive glare can be distracting to observers attempting to make critical color judgments.

The selection, evaluation, and training of observers are treated in Guide E Light Evenness Even light intensity across the sample assures correct interpretation of color quality. Chromaticity Chromaticity is the apparent color of a light source.


S1729 Light Sources Metamerism Various light sources are described in d7129 ASTM D viewing standard, including artificial daylight D50, D65 and D75incandescent specifically illuminant A and a light source at Kcool white fluorescent CWF and other sources as required, which include various types of fluorescent lamps available to the industry.

The significance of the results depends on that being so. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. An equally important function of the standard is to allow effective communication of color between parties working together on color critical projects.

ASTM D1729-96 Color Viewing Standard

It is measured in the Kelvin temperature scale. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

In order to assure consistent color appearance and tonal range, the surround condition is specified. Visual appraisal is particularly important when the product inspected is not of the same material as the color standard to which it is compared. ASTM D Color Viewing Standard This is the standard for visual appraisal of colors and color s1729 of diffusely illuminated opaque materials.

ASTM D Color Viewing Standard

In the graphic arts and photography industries, D50 is the standardized source and is referenced in ISO From our inception inGrafitec International Inc. This practice is widely used in industry to choose colors, exhibit colors reproducibility, inspect incoming materials, monitor color producing processes, and inspect finished goods.

The closer a light source’s spectral power distribution is to D50 the more accurate it is. Light Intensity Consistent light intensity is critical to consistent color evaluation.

Likewise, the effects of geometric metamerism, if not taken into account in evaluation observations, will result in color mismatches. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health ashm and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. We offer each of the standard sources as well as most of the fluorescent sources.

The standardization of visual ast has greatly improved the uniformity of products and the accuracy of color matches. This practice requires judgments by observers with a minimum of normal color vision and preferably superior as rated with the FM Hue Test as specified in Guide E Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

This standard provides a target intensity range designed to allow full tonal visibility of dark samples without overilluminating light samples. This is the standard for visual appraisal of colors and color differences of diffusely illuminated opaque materials.
