6500K Colour Matching Lamps for Colour Matching, Inspection, and Aesthetic
A properly designed
colour matching system takes into consideration the output and colour quality
of the lamps. In order to assure excellent colour rendition and tight tolerance
visual agreement, all GTI colour matching systems utilize GTI ColorMatcher
6500K Colour Matching Lamps.
6500K lamps are manufactured with a unique blend of fluorescent phosphors that
is unequalled by any other 6500 Kelvin lamp in the industry. GTI lamps produce
a true full spectrum white light which renders colours with the highest degree
of accuracy and efficiency. When used in GTI colour matching systems, the GTI
ColorMatcher 6500K lamp produces an actual system CRI rating of B/C based on
CIE Standard 15.2 and Publication 51, one of the highest in the industry.
GTI colour matching systems include a
reflector, diffuser, the booth structure, geometry of illumination, and GTI
ColorMatcher 6500K lamps. A change in this system’s formulation can create a
slight colour cast that will impact colour assessment, resulting in a viewing
environment that is not ASTM compliant. To maintain an ASTM D1729 compliant
viewing system, use only GTI ColorMatcher lamps and relamp regularly.
When to Relamp
A lamp’s colour
output and intensity changes over time. To maintain consistent and accurate
viewing conditions, colour matching systems should be relamped after every
2,500 hours of use. GTI colour matching systems should be relamped only with
GTI ColorMatcher 6500K lamps.
