Paper Abstract

The printing process of textile materials uses an ink set dependent of the image to be printed and referred as the primary color palette. The colors of the printed textile material depend on the printing sequence of the ink masks and are referred as the secondary color palette. A single primary color palette may conduct to different secondary color palettes, as a function of printing sequence. This paper provides an analysis of the mechanism of color appearance on the printed textile materials. The analysis conducts to a model to simulate on the computer display the appearance of the textile printed colors as a function of a number of parameters. The simulation includes a generalized Neugebauer model. A hierarchical structure is introduced for the colors of the secondary palette in order to provide the coefficients of the Neugebauer model. For a certain textile material, the color hierarchy is dependent on the ink set and the printing sequence. The color hierarchy is established as result of color calibration process. Printed samples are used for calibration procedure.
