A material's ability to absorb certain wavelengths of light and reflect others is defined as its colour. For example a black material reflects no light across the complete colour spectrum. A pure white material reflects all of the light, whilst all other colours reflect light at different points of the spectrum. Colour is quantified by the material's Red, Green and Blue (RGB) values.
Elcometer offers a variety of equipment, including spectrophotometers and colour charts, used to accurately identify the specific colour of a sample.
