X-Rite Incorporated, a global leader in color science and technology, and Pantone LLC, today announced six new libraries for PantoneLIVE™, a cloud-based digital color standard ecosystem. Developed with their PantoneLIVE Preferred Partner for ink supply, Sun Chemical, the six new dependent standard libraries are ideal for UV-cured flexography printers and converters allowing them to accurately match achievable Pantone Colors in label and carton applications. Consumer goods companies and designers can use the new libraries to better define, create, visualize and communicate color palettes for clear film packaging, aluminum labels and recycled cartons produced with UV-cured flexographic printing technology.
