Glossary is usually defined as an alphabetical list of technical terms in some specialized field of knowledge. This knowledge base glossary provides a collection of knowledge base documents that define many technical terms. These terms are arranged alphabetically, but you can quickly jump to a specific term by selecting its first letter from the index of the knowledge base glossary below.

Optical model
In pigment formulation software, it is the mathematical approach used to calculate the K (absorption) and S (scattering), K/S values or A (absorbance) values for colorants. There are four models to choose from: • Transparent • Transmission • Translucent • Opaque Each type uses a specific method for sample preparation and sample presentation, and a specific mathematical equation for calculating the optical constants.

Optimize-colorant calibration
Process by which the program calculates optical constants through a curve fit between the sum of the level data and the sum of the mixtures data.

Parameter
The parameter values in textile formulation software (e.g. “fastness”) are defined in a colorant set for each dye, and used to set limits for the recipe calculation.

Paste
Intermediate, semi-aqueous form of a colorant that contains dry colorant, resin and solvents.

Paste Balance
Clear or extender added to dry material to make paste.

Perceptibility
Refers to a difference between samples than can be detected visually. In the case of colored samples, color differences detected using an instrument may not be perceptible.

Performance data
Data gathered by the correction program that helps the system to understand how the ingredients in the batch are performing. The program offers two types of performance data: • Performance factors • SmartMatch performance data Selections are made in job preferences regarding the type of performance data to be applied to a correction.

Performance factors
In pigment formulation software, users may also define permanent Performance Factors for individual colorants in each colorant set. For colorants, a Performance Factor is a multiplier to concentration, similar to ingredient strength. They are used to improve the quality of formula predictions. Temporary performance factors are calculated during correction, based on the Job Trial formula and measurement.

Primary
A physical sample containing a specific concentration of color. The measurement of the sample, and the formulas used to make the sample is referred to as a mixture, and is entered into the colorant set record using Colorant Set Maintenance.

Primary Colorant
A liquid form of colorant dispersion, or paste used in the actual tinting or color matching of your bases.

Process factor
In textile match prediction, used to take into account differences in dyestuff build up. The dyestuff concentrations are multiplied with the process factor.

Process type
In textile formulation software, process types are Exhaust, Continuous, or Cold Pad Batch.

Product
In textile formulation software, a product is either a dyestuff or an auxiliary.

Production correction
An additional recipe is calculated that is used to change the color of the dyed batch to the correct color.

Qualified Profile
Contains the specific calibration information required to reproduce colors for viewing under a specific illuminant by a specific observer on a device that is configured for a specific set of conditions. Qualified profiles are generated from profiles such that each profile may have several qualified profiles. A qualified profile is typically defined by the combination of its illuminant and observer.
