The Paper and pulp industry is a highly complex industry that intergrates many different process areas including wood preparation, pulping, chemical recovery, bleaching, and papermaking to convert wood to the final product. Processing options and the type of wood processed are often determined by the final product.
Common paper products include cardboard packaging for logistics, white printer paper and other forms of paper used in everyday life from newspaper to business cards.
The paper industry’s main concern with colour relates to the whiteness of the paper which can easily be determined with objective colour measurement. Objective colour management in the paper industry ensures that manufacturers are able to meet standards, test whiteness and shade and reduce debates between customers and suppliers around colour measurement.
Objective colour management can assist paper producers in the following ways:
- Measure the colour of pulp during the production process
- Measure the colour of final paper products
- Detect OBA in the paper by measuring within the UV spectrum
- Grade paper on a C.I.E approved whiteness scale
- Reduce customer complaints and rejections based on colour
We serve an almost endless number of applications in the paper industry, below we have highlighted some examples of how colour is used to monitor quality, prevent production rejections and ensure that paper products meet industry standards and guidelines.
