Ready to ship
Ready to use colorant ratios separated by pigment, solvent and additive. The solvent and additive percentages that make up the ready to use amount are defined for each colorant in the colorant set.

Ready to use
Ratios of colorants as prepared in primary calibration.

Ready-to-use / press ready / finished product
A finished product that contains resins, solvents, colorants and additives in the correct proportions.

Recipe calculation
A process which identifies and calculates the amounts of each coloring matter in a material so that the final color looks like (i.e. matches) the given sample in a specified light source and price. It is possible to get several combinations which match the sample so the process can give the most cost effective one.

Recycle
An ingredient that has already been processed, and can be re-used in other formulas. It may also be referred to as ‘waste’ or ‘work off’.

Reflectance
The ratio of the intensity of the reflected light to that of the incident light. In popular usage, it is considered as the ratio of the intensity of reflected radiant energy to that reflected from a defined (white) reference standard.

Reproducibility / inter-instrument agreement
A comparison of measurements made of the same sample by different instruments. The variation in sample measurements is expressed in terms of DE. Manufacturers of spectrophotometers for commercial use include a value for inter-instrument agreement in the instrument specification. This value is only valid for comparisons made using instruments of the same model.

Resin
One or a group of organic materials, either natural or synthetic, that serves as a vehicle for the colorant. Resins can impart gloss, adhesion, heat resistance, odor retention, resistance to chemicals, hardness, film-forming abilities, and other properties to the finished product. Alternate names include vehicle, clear, and extender.
