The course objective is to provide technical
fundamentals for matching and maintaining color
control for metallic and "effect" colors, including
automotive components and non-automotive
applications. It features proper visual metallic color
match evaluation using defined-viewing-angle color
protractors as well as use of multi-angle color
difference measurement to meet the revised SAE
J1545 recommended practice. Correlation of visual to
measured data is studied from student projects with
metallic color samples and parts, using portable
daylighting and multi-angle spectrophotometer data.
Class starts each day at 8:30 am and concludes at 4:30.         Upcoming Detroit Colour Council
