Abstract

A premise was set up entailing the possibility of a synergistical combination of advantages of spectrophotometric and colorimetric matching procedures. Attempts were therefore made to test the performances of fifteen matching procedures, all based on the Kubelka–Munk theory, including two procedures utilizing the fundamental color stimulus RFCS of the spectral decomposition theory. Color differences CIE ΔE00 as well as concentration differences ΔCAVE were used to theoretically rank the fifteen color matching procedures. Results showed that procedures based on RFCS were superior in accurately predicting colors and concentrations. Additionally, the metameric black component RMB of the decomposition theory also showed promise in predicting degrees of metamerism. This preliminary study, therefore, provides evidence for the premise of this investigation.
