The revolutionary theory of colors
Any colored substance or dye (tone – nuance – pigments) are the result of a mixture of primary and secondary colors plus black and white with a maximum of four colors.
The primary colors are: red-green-blue (RGB).
The secondary colors: cyan magenta yellow – – (CMY).
Black (K) and white (W) are also called "achromatic" colours.
These eight colours are also referred to as "basic colors" because with their combination form all the colors of the universe possible. Primary and secondary colours are figuratively placed at the corners of a regular hexagon alternated between them.
The color black is also formed by the mix of all primary or secondary colors; the white colour is also formed by the absence of the six basic colors (white – white wall support).
The oldest known mixture is subtractive achromatic mixture "which combine two of the three secondary colors plus black and white (a total of four colors).
Mixing, and proposed in 1972 by h. Kueppers, in his theory of colours, is called "mash", which (updated by Roman Dubbini) involves a primary color, secondary color are adjacent to each other in the hexagon more white and black (a total of four colors).
Nowadays, all primary and secondary colors are encoded according to the intensity of their tone (CMY) and percentages values (RGB numeric values from 0 to 255).
Romano Dubbini, along with Katia Longa (F.T.R. S.p.A) have developed a work programme submitted in excel for that by using color codes, you can get automatically and directly the recipe in% of the amount of necessary pigments for coloring coating pastes and printing or dyeing baths PDP for the four most important economic actors: dyeing and printing in textile finishing – painting in the construction industry – the finishing decoration in the realization of the wallpaper.
It should be noted that the same shades of colour can be obtained with the two different mixtures: the achromatic subtractive (that used in domestic and industrial printers!) and integrated mixture (discovered by Kueppers in 1972). The difference between the two mixtures, is given by the cost (30 – 50% less with the integrated) and from the economic benefits arising from the fact that with integrated mixing using lower amounts of pigment.
seeing is believing!
The whole thing takes place if you know the codes "RGB", or "CMYK" of the countless colors and if you have a warehouse pigments formed by the eight basic colors.
F.T.R. arranges and distributes the eight basic colors, coordinated in the shade and in the rendering.
F.T.R. offers a sample of approximately 1,500 universally known and used tones, along with the application technology.
seeing is believing!
With integrated mixing Kueppers, updated by Dubbini, save 30-50% in pigments, you get the purest colors, you improve rubbing fastness and washing, it pollutes less and the stock is reduced to 8 color pigment concentrates.
