Substrate
The substrate is the background over which a colored material is applied. When a colored material does not totally hide the background, the background has an influence on the color difference of the match. If you are working with a transparent or translucent material, using a different substrate will change the color of the material.

Substrate blank dyeing
Dyeing without dyestuff but with all auxiliaries.

Substrate delivery
Specific substrate delivery. Small differences between different substrate deliveries may force corrections of the recipe.

Thinner
A specific ingredient type that identifies a collection of ingredients sometimes worked with as a group usually for purposes of formula scaling. It is a component ingredient, usually a solvent or diluent, added to a formula for viscosity adjustment. A thinner cannot be a colorant, and does not have a strength factor.

Tolerance value
A numerical value used to determine the acceptability of a sample.

Translucent
A term used to describe a sample that is not completely transparent, nor opaque. Light is partially absorbed and scattered by the materials in the sample, and by the background of the sample. Samples that are translucent are also said to exhibit ‘incomplete hide’.

Transmission
A measurement of light passing through an object.

Transparent
Adjective to describe a material that transmits light without diffusion or scattering.

Transparent resin
A resin that does not scatter or absorb any light.

Treatment
A treatment consists of one or more operations describing the dyeing process for laboratory and/or production.

Trial
In pigment formulation software, this is the sample that is compared to the target. It represents the color that you want to correct. It is also referred to as the batch sample.

White
A colorant with high scattering and low absorption.

White Bases
Typically refers to all non- colored or clear bases such as pastel, medium deep, etc.
