Knowledge Base  Glossary of Terms  
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.

Fast correction Used for a production correction without an existing recipe. It is based on a theoretical calculated recipe of the standard. Fiber Single fiber to be dyed. Fiber group All fibers used for a Quality / Style. A fiber group can be a single fiber or a combination of different fibers, e.g., PES, PES/CO. Film Thickness Film thickness is a physical property that is related to the dry film. It can be expressed in percentage (%), or a number representing a unit of measurement.
If you are working with transparent or translucent samples, differences in film thickness have a large impact on the acceptance of a color match. A formula from Formula Central must be applied at the displayed film thickness in order to achieve the other specifications included in the formula display, such as contrast ratio, color difference, or others. Formula Form The form describes the type of physical material you are using. For example, colorants can be dry powder, dispersions/ concentrates, or finished products. Formula mode The mode refers to how you measure the ingredients that go into the formula. For example, If you weigh the amounts of each ingredient, the formula mode is weight units. If you assemble formulas based on volume, or specific gravity (gallons, liters, cc’s, etc.) you will need the formula expressed in volumetric units. Fractional part When working with volumetric formulas, it is often the case that a formula expressed in decimals cannot be used directly.
For example, the formula calls for 0.77 gallons of Relative Magenta. If you are working in gallons and fluid ounces, you must manually convert the .xxx gallons into the equivalent ounces. In this case the equivalent ounces of Relative Magenta are:
.77 X 128 oz/gal = 98.56 ounces
A formula that directly expressed ingredient amounts in the number of gallons and fluid ounces would be more useful in this application. The Fractional Parts feature provides this conversion.
