X-Rite and Pantone add new flexo colour libraries
X-Rite and Pantone have announced six new libraries for PantoneLive, a cloud based digital colour standard ecosystem. Developed with preferred partner for ink supply, Sun Chemical, the six new dependent standard libraries are ideal for UV cured flexography printers and converters allowing them to accurately match achievable Pantone colours in label and carton applications.
The new libraries can be used to better define, create, visualise and communicate colour palettes for clear film packaging, aluminium labels and recycled cartons produced with UV cured flexographic printing technology.
‘We are continuously evolving the PantoneLive platform to support a wider range of packaging applications and help designers and suppliers easily visualise on screen how colour palettes will appear in production,’ said Adrián Fernández, general manager, Pantone. ‘The addition of the new libraries makes UV flexo printing with Pantone colours on labels and cartons much easier by providing printers with the official Pantone spectral targets. Today, PantoneLive offers over 70,000 e colour choices for the top packaging and printing applications, helping to speed up the entire packaging design process and get products to market faster.’
