Dulux Protective Coatings Colour Accuracy Statement
Whilst every effort has been made to accurately match the colours depicted on our website to actual product colours, Dulux Protective Coatings advises that there may be colour variation between these. Variation may be due to a combination of factors, including:
- Computer monitor (make, model and screen type)
- Screen settings (resolution, contrast and brightness control)
- Room lighting (eg. incandescent, fluorescent, halogen or natural light)
Furthermore, a coating can exhibit variation in perceived colour from a given colour standard depending on gloss level and application method. Another complication is metamerism, a phenomenon in which the perceived colour changes, depending on the light source under which it is viewed; for example a product in a given yellow can appear to be an exact match to the standard colour swatch under sunlight, but appear to have a very different tone under an incandescent or fluorescent light.
Please note that the Quantum FX and Micaceous Iron Oxide colours can also exhibit additional variation in appearance due to the metallic flake pigments they contain. The perceived colour of metallic pigmented paints varies widely according to viewing angle, light source and application method due to reflective metal flake in the formulation.
