Pantone D65 Stickers Used to Evaluate Color of Textiles


Pantone D65 Stickers Used to Evaluate Color of Textiles

Pantone LLC, an X-Rite company and the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, announced the availability of Pantone D65 Lighting Indicator Stickers. 
Similar to the D50 Lighting Indicator Stickers announced earlier this year, the new D65 Lighting Indicator Stickers make it easy for designers and manufacturers to determine if colors are being viewed under the right lighting conditions for accurate color evaluation, specification and matching. Whereas D50 lighting is commonly used for evaluating printed design work and photography, D65 is commonly used to evaluate the color of textiles, paints, plastics and other manufactured products. 

“Quality of light has a critical impact on color appearance, and making a color decision under the wrong lighting conditions can lead to costly and time-consuming mistakes,” said Giovanni Marra, director of corporate marketing at Pantone. “The new Lighting Indicator Stickers for D65 lighting provide a simple and economical way for designers and manufacturers to determine if colors are being viewed under the correct lighting conditions, allowing designers to be more confident in their color choices.” 

All Pantone Lighting Indicator Stickers (D50 and D65) have two light-sensitive patches that react to viewing illumination and change color under different lighting temperatures. Under proper D65-range lighting, the two patches will appear to match, and, if lighting conditions do not fall within the D65 range, the two patches will not match. The further the light source is from the D65 range, the greater the contrast will be in appearance.
