Measurement backings

Definition:
White backingBlack backing
Opaque (transparency > 99 %)Opaque
Diffuse-reflectingDiffuse-reflecting
CIELAB C* ≤ 3 (should ≤ 2.4)Not spectrally selective
No fluorescence (∆B ≤ 1)Visual density: 1.6 ≥ VD ≥ 1.3
Spectral reflectance factors:
0.74 ≥ R(380nm) ≥ 0.12
0.80 ≥ R(390nm) ≥ 0.19
0.84 ≥ R(400nm) ≥ 0.37
0.87 ≥ R(410nm) ≥ 0.61
0.88 ≥ R(420nm) ≥ 0.75
0.89 ≥ R(430nm) ≥ 0.78
0.90 ≥ R(440nm, 450nm) ≥ 0.79
0.91 ≥ R(460nm, ..., 730nm) ≥ 0.79

The following white backings correspond to ISO/DIS 13655:2014+ as quoted further down

  • Gretag/Macbeth SpectroScan with white backing
  • ColorScout A+ for Konica Minolta FD-7 with white backing
  • ColorPartner Whitebacking
  • X-RITE iO with white backing
  • Barbierie Spectro LFP with white backing

Additionally, proof papers which fulfill the above mentioned requirements can also be used as a white backing. Please refer to our proof paper database to find out which substrates are suitable and how many layers of the respective substrate are required for this purpose. 

Do you still use self backing [sb]? More information on that topic.

Abridged evalution

We would like to share some evaluations with you regarding the compliance of different backing materials according the all new tolerances (see above) stipulated in ISO/DIS 13655:2016+. Please find the XLS file here. A brief video showing what we did is here:
