1. Scope
1.1 This practice provides guidelines for the instrumental transmittance measurement ofthe color ofcoated and uncoated transparent glass. (See Terminology E284.) 1.2 The practice specifically excludes fluorescent and iri- descent samples. 1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only. 1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appro- priate safety, health, and environmental practices and deter- mine the applicability ofregulatory limitations prior to use. 1.5 This international standard was developed in accor- dance with internationally recognized principles on standard- ization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recom- mendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
3. Summary of Practice
3.1 The color of transparent glass is measured in the total transmittance mode on a CIE-conforming diffuse instrument. (See Guide E179 and Test Method E1348.) The glass color is expressed in CIE tristimulus values based on spectral transmit- tance measurements over the full CIE spectral range of 350 to 780 nm with a maximum 10 nm band pass. (See CIE 15:2004 and Practice E308.) For color measurement, use of a truncated spectral range of 400 to 700 nm is acceptable. (See CIE 15:2004.) Further information on the UV absorbing character- istics of the glass or glass coating, or both, may be determined by examining the spectral data in the 350 to 400 nm range. If the instrument allows spectral measurement above 700 nm, useful information on the IR transmittance characteristics of the glass or glass coating may also be determined. If coatings are present, they are assumed to reflect and partially transmit light.
4. Significance and Use
4.1 Color measurement quantifies the transmitted color for glass. The user defines an acceptable range ofcolor appropriate for the end use. A typical quality concern for transmittance color measurement ofglass products is verification oflot-to-lot color consistency for end-user acceptance. 4.2 If the transmitted color of a glass product is consistent from lot-to-lot and within agreed supplier-buyer acceptance criteria, the product’s color is expected to be consistent and acceptable for end-use.
5. Apparatus
5.1 For color measurements, a CIE-conforming diffuse sphere instrument capable of making transmission measure- ments in the total transmittance mode is required. 5.2 In addition, a device for mounting the glass sample flush at the transmission port is required. 5.3 The instrument and associated color quality software/ firmware shall be capable of converting measured spectral transmittance data to CIE L*, a* b*; Hunter L, a, b; or Y, x, y values calculated for CIE illuminant D65 and the CIE 1964 10 degree standard observer. (See Practice E1164.) Any of those mappings will serve as a full numerical color descriptor. (See Practice E308.) CIE Y transmittance can also serve as an over-all indicator of transmission. For other illuminant/ observer combinations, see Practice E308 for guidance in use. For effective communication of color values between sites, color measurements must be expressed in the same color scale, illuminant, and standard observer. 5.4 The expression of a color difference in terms of rectangular, polar, or elliptical color differences shall serve to quantify the difference between target product color and lot color. (See Practice D2244.)
