DIN SPEC 16699

Open Colour Communication; Text in German and English

inactive
Organization: DIN
Publication Date: 1 November 2018
Status: inactive
Page Count: 44
ICS Code (IT applications in other fields): 35.240.99
ICS Code (Other standards related to graphic technology): 37.100.99
ICS Code (Colours and measurement of light): 17.180.20
scope:

Within the framework of this DIN SPEC, work tools and procedures are defined for open and unambiguous colour communication from design to the finished print product. CIELAB colour values, physical samples produced on colour-accurate proofing systems according to ISO 12647-7, and spectral data in the CxF format according to ISO 17972-1:2015 serve as basis for this open colour communication. This DIN SPEC both describes the way to create physical samples and CxF spectral data for any CIELAB colour values by the user and the basic points of an open reference colour system to be able to produce complete colour atlases including spectral data.

The tools and procedures described in this DIN SPEC address in particular colour communication in the graphic industry under D50 standardised light according to ISO 3664 and are suitable for the production of matt, semi-matt and glossy colour samples on closed unstructured surfaces.

The informative appendix at the end of the DIN specification outlines various strategies for defining colours in the design process across different industrial sectors and communicating them to manufacturing companies using physical patterns and spectral data. The final approval of a colour by the customer always takes place by means of an established specific process for the respective industrial sector.
