Basic knowledge of printing ink color allocation

1. Ink color

the color of printing ink depends on the selection and composition of pigments. In order to meet the needs of commodities and commodity packaging, human beings have developed new ink color varieties and improved the quality of the traditional color hue in its relatively poor use environment

the ink color on the substrate is often restricted by its own chromaticity and the influence of ambient light. For example, it is green, red, white, etc. under the standard light source. However, if the ambient light or irradiation conditions change, such as red light entering the white ink film, the white packaging printing ink will be red. The surface decoration color of any packaging substrate is not known at first glance. According to the knowledge of color chromaticity, we should constantly study the law of color change of ink film in order to print good products

2. The concept of the same color and different spectrum of printing decoration

to meet the needs of the color varieties of packaging and printing inks, it is not enough to rely on a few existing colors. Only through a certain color matching process can we get the requirements of the serialization of finished color inks in the market. The new color hue is obtained once the intermediate color or multicolor is printed, which is not only in line with the normal law of packaging and printing, but also in line with the law of color matching

in order to achieve the above requirements, the concept of homochromatic heterospectral color is proposed. Ink color samples with different spectral distribution are very important for color matching of color packaging printing ink. That is, different ink colors can be used to mix varieties of the same ink color. In the actual color matching, it can only reach a certain degree of approximation, and can be evaluated by the curve shape of spectral reflectance factor. The more similar and coincident the reflectance factor curves of two samples, the more intersection points, the more it can be proved that the prepared color is similar to the sample. The color difference value can also be calculated from the chromaticity of two ink samples for quantitative analysis. It shows the degree of their same color and different spectrum

3. Basic knowledge of color blending

in the packaging and printing ink system, the binder is colorless or slightly colored liquid, and the refractive index is very close to water, so the binder has a certain transparency. When pigments and fillers are added, because the pigments and fillers block the light, the optical properties of the ink change

when sunlight enters the ink film of yellow color printing ink, it means that it absorbs the blue spectrum in sunlight and emits yellow and green light. When the reflected yellow light and green light meet blue pigment particles, they often absorb the reflected blue light, leaving only green light. Thus, after a series of reflection and refraction, it only reflects the green ink film. Therefore, we call this kind of printing ink color mixing subtractive mixing (mutual absorption of their required wavelengths, but will not be reflected by the absorption spectrum), which is the origin of mixed color (or multicolor)

due to the subtraction principle used in China's packaging and printing ink industry, the complementary color of three primary colors is adopted

we use the color light of various printing ink colors to compound many colorful ink colors

if the colors of packaging, printing and decoration design are fully conceived, from yellow, magenta and green of the three primary colors to red, green and blue of the three colors, and then to Fuchsia, bronze, olive green and black of the four colors, they can be combined into a new form of expression, just as people have known that if different ink color hues (hues), different ink lightness and different ink color chromaticity are combined together, It will also give people a soft and harmonious feeling of the beauty of the light materials developed and utilized by ELG and idasso in Chery electric vehicles

throughout the operation of machinery, we should inspect the colors used in the color cards of packaging and printing inks at home and abroad. Except for the three primary colors, most of them are composite colors. The blending of composite (combined) colors is itself a color science. The prepared packaging and printing colors finally use our visual inspection to determine their effects, good, bad, good and bad. Using the decoration color of packaging and printing to give us the goods we need, decorate a wide range of colors, and constantly adjust the working and living environment will give people benign stimulation, which is conducive to the improvement of the quality of work and life

there are several colors in the packaging and decoration of goods in the same environment, so the coordination between colors is always an endless topic for us to study. For example, complementary (red and green) colors (the sum of the two colors equals white) sometimes give people a vulgar feeling if they are not well matched. If they are well mixed, they will give people a strong and eye-catching feeling. Light yellow with reddish brown will give people a harmonious beauty because the colors between yellow and red are similar and the hues are similar. There are dark green and light green, the color is fresh and dazzling. The method of matching achromatism and color at the same time gives people a bright feeling and protects their eyesight. The three hues of red, white and blue appear on a package at the same time, giving people the feeling that red is warm, white is pure, and blue is solemn, reflecting the beauty of a commodity material

although China has formulated China's color chromatography as early as the 1950s, and more than 4000 varieties in 56 enterprises are summarized into the now unified P, t, a, W, Z "self degradable" materials: 86 printing inks of five types that are expected to alleviate the problems of plastics and electronic waste, and 29 testing standards have been formulated successively. In addition, the printing ink color cards of various packaging and printing ink factories are publicized and distributed in various packaging and printing enterprises. As a designer and worker of packaging and printing ink, he should not be limited to the existing ink color cards and hue range, but can gradually meet the purpose of users' increasingly different requirements through the use of Munsell color map, physical sample album of Chinese color system and computer color matching.
