Abstract

The turbid-media theory used most widely for industrial color matching is based on the mathematical work of Kubelka and Munk but employs a single constant (K/S) rather than the two constants K and S. For a wide gamut of colors the single-constant theory is adequate, but it is not adequate for colors in which the scatter is highly dependent on the colored pigments present. The accuracy of the two-constant theory in handling the latter colors has been experimentally determined and found to be as high as is required for present industrial processes.
