Pantone Plastic Standard Chips
CARLSTADT, N.J.-Pantone has made large-format Pantone Plastic Standard Chips available to designers and others in the trade, making color specifications easier and more efficient, the company said.
With the ability to match all 3,400 standard Pantone colors in the Pantone Plus Series and Pantone Fashion + Home Color System Libraries, Pantone Plastic Standard Chips provide "an internationally recognized color language for plastics," according to the company. Pantone Plastic Standard Chips are sold individually, making it possible for designers to send complete color specifications, along with their designs, to clients and manufacturers - increasing efficiencies, reducing costs and accelerating speed to market.
The chips include both gloss and matte finishes in a large 3-inch-by-1 7/8-inch format. The new larger chips are tiered, ranging in thickness from 1mm to 2mm, making it easier to visualize, measure and match Pantone colors in plastic. Individual chips include Pantone color names and/or numbers along with the corresponding pigment formulations and spectral data information. Custom color matches are also available.
