It has been technically proven that the physical color of a textile sample can alter substantially if the ambient temperature and relative humidity is not stable. When the surroundings in which color samples are stored and measured are not properly controlled, incorrect color measurements can occur, which can lead to mistakes all the way through the supply chain. With the Datacolor CONDITIONER™, you can help ensure that samples measured anywhere in the world will be consistent with each other. The system ensures that samples are quickly and correctly conditioned at a fixed temperature and relative humidity prior to their physical measurement. In addition, with the option of lighting, the unit can also supply a constant and stable exposure to light of a specific defined illumination, thereby also ensuring stability of conditioning to light. The result is that precious time and money can be saved during the development and production of colors by totally eliminating variability factors caused by incorrect measurements due to varying environmental conditions.
