Have you received labdips that are not right first time? and despite a second or third round of labdips garments ended up in stores with issues of color variation and loss of color harmony in collections, metamerism or poor color fastness. It is possible to quickly know in advance of requesting any labdips, which colors may be a challenge in production and stores. How about your colors for Spring/Summer 2015?

Without applying a comprehensive feasibility analysis (focus on nylon only), we found some points to be mentioned for a typical Spring/Summer 2015 color mood board collection of colo

rs and wanted to share our findings with you.


Spectra Yellow 14-0957 TCX
This color has difficulties to achieve metameric free match. The reflectance curve of the color would require an optimization to be less of a challenge in production.

Blazing Yellow 12-0643 TCX
To avoid using fluorescent element with low light fastness such as AY 250 or AY 184, we would recommend using Lanasyn Flavine F-5G.

Spring Bouquet 14-6340 TCX
To ensure consistent dyeing results with good overall fastness performance, we would recommend basing the recipe on AG 81.

Capri Breeze 17-4735 TCX
This color requires the use of a turquoise element such as DBL 86, which leads to difficulties in dyeing and fastness performance. We would recommend using shading elements with high brilliancy and good performance such as ABL 239 (cotton = RG 38 or RG 21).
