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.

Masstone
A colorant/vehicle mixture that contains a single colorant.

Measurement Condition
Identifies the settings on the instrument. These include: • Measurement type (reflectance or transmittance) • Aperture Size • Specular Port position (Specular Included or Specular Excluded) • Position of adjustable UV filter

Measurement Method
Identifies the source of the spectral data for the sample.

Metameric match
Two samples which match under one set of conditions but no longer match on changing one or more of the conditions.

Metamerism
A pair of colors that match under one or more sets of conditions but differ markedly in color if you change one or more of the conditions. A phenomenon exhibited by a pair of colors that only match under one set of viewing conditions. A metameric pair of samples have the same tristimulus values for a specific set of viewing conditions but have different reflectance curves.

Metamerism index
A metamerism index is used to quantify the amount or degree of metamerism that exists between two samples. It takes into account the color difference between two samples, under two different Illuminant/Observer conditions.

Mixture
A finished sample containing a specific concentration of color. The measurement of the sample, the concentration of color, and other information about the sample is entered using Colorant Set Maintenance. This information is used to calculate the optical data for the color. This sample can also be referred to as a "primary".

Module
A module contains pre-selected answers to the fields appearing on Ingredient Selection screen. If you frequently use the same ingredient selections, number of colorants in formula, etc., you can create a module that automatically makes those selections. Using a module reduces the input for each match or correction, and reduces the possibility of input errors.

Monotone data
Reflectance data of a dyestuff is manipulated for a non-linear build-up of K/S. It is used when an error in making a sample or contamination causes the build-up curve to dip and divert in the opposite direction to the general trend. Monotone means keeping the same slope as the general trend.
