WHERE COLOURS ARE HATCHED

COLOR LAB

COLOR LAB

The colours of POSITIVE COATING are not created by chance: they are designed and then developed with a great deal of meticulousness.

It takes a coordinated team effort to identify and anticipate trends. This genuine creative cauldron gives rise to unique colours, shades and tones.

WHY COLOR LAB?

LAB refers to the name of the CIE 1976 L*a*b* colour space, generally known as CIE Lab, which is used to characterise surface colours at POSITIVE COATING.

Colours are characterised by three quantities

  • the lightness L* is derived from the surface luminance, and adopts values of between 0 (black) to 100 (reference white)
  • the parameter a* represents the value on an axis from green to red
  • the parameter b* represents the value on an axis from blue to yellow

POSITIVE COATING’s customers can send the company their colour references based on other colour charts (Pantone, etc.), and POSITIVE COATING will be able to express exactly the colour that they want to obtain.
