ISCC Guide to Material Standards and Their Use in Color Measurement
After several years of updating by ISCC Project Committee 51, the new revision
of ISCC’s Guide to Material Standards and Their Use in Color Measurement
(ISCC TR 2003-1) is now available for purchase from the ISCC office, at a price
of $50 plus shipping and handling. (Please fax or mail the order form available
The Guide provides an introduction to material standards and their use for the
standardization of color measuring instruments. It defines and describes various
types of material standards and gives procedures for their use in assessing instrument
parameters affecting color measurement. It then discusses desirable properties
of material standards, and provides tables of commercially available standard
materials, material standards, and standardization services for color measurement.
Typical standardization procedures are then provided as examples, and the Guide
closes with a Glossary and an Annotated Bibliography.
Initiated by the ASTM in 1957 and continued by ISCC Project Committee 22, the
document has a history of more than four decades. The last revision of the Guide
to Material Standards was ISCC Technical Report 89-1, published in 1989. Much
has changed since that time in instrumentation, available materials, and venues
for obtaining and standardizing the materials. The Guide will be an important
addition to any colorimetrist’s bookshelf.
