Colour is a very good and rapid indicator that something is wrong. This may be within the production of finished product or the development of a novel compound. Rapid, accurate, colour measurement provides a means for evaluation of incoming raw materials, final products and packaging material in its many different forms.
Samples can change throughout the manufacturing process, in both form and colour. Choosing the correct colour scales, wavelengths and sample management is easier when partnered with an expert. Our equipment enables you to manage colour in liquids, powders, gels and granules. If you would like to see how, just ask us for a demonstration.
Using a Lovibond® colour measurement system means that you can communicate and control colour quality consistently throughout your supply chain.

Lovibond® has its origins in the brewing industry and we have been measuring colour since 1880. Joseph Lovibond was the first person in the world to develop a practical colorimeter to ensure the high quality of his beer. He was the originator of the Lovibond® scale. We still use the scale as our company logo today. Still a family owned business but now global, at Lovibond® we value our heritage.
