C Mix Farbkartenbalken

Brilliant, mono-pigmented, for mixing Pantone, RAL, HKS and other color references


The 12 semi-transparent C-MIX 2000 colors are perfectly suitable for the exact mixing of color shades according to various color systems or customer-specific shades, particularly the brilliant shades of Pantone and HKS.

Mono-pigmentation, which means that each basic color contains only one pigment, allows quick and easy color matching. With our free-of-charge Formula Management C-MIX 2000 data base we provide guide formulations for Pantone, HKS and RAL shades, separated into 1- or 2-component ink ranges.

Due to their physical properties, formulations with C-MIX 2000 colors, like Pantone and HKS, are primarily used for printing on white or light-colored substrates.

Standard Farbkartenbalken

The classics. Color-intensive, medium opacity
The standard colors, with color numbering 10, 11, 12 and so on, are our classic chromatic colors from times before Pantone and alike. Here the printer can choose the most appropriate hue from several yellow, red and blue shades. Most standard colors are manufactured with more than one pigment per shade and are very color-intensive with a medium to good opacity.

Standard HD Farbkartenbalken

Unsurpassed opacity
Printing on transparent, black, very dark or colored substrates is daily business in pad printing. For this the best possible opacity is needed. The 12 Standard HD shades (10 colors, black, white) were formulated with a very high concentration of especially opaque pigments. Standard HD shades are available in many of our ink ranges.
