X-Rite, Pantone add new flexo colour libraries to PantoneLIVE

June 22, 2018  By PrintAction Staff

X-Rite Incorporated and Pantone announce six new libraries for PantoneLIVE, a Cloud-based digital colour standard ecosystem. Developed with their PantoneLIVE Preferred Partner for ink supply, Sun Chemical, the six new dependent standard libraries allows UV-cured flexography printers and converters to match achievable Pantone colours in label and carton applications.

The parties say the new libraries can help users better define, create, visualize and communicate colour palettes for clear film packaging, aluminum labels and recycled cartons produced with UV-cured flexographic printing technology.

“In collaboration with Sun Chemical, we are continuously evolving the PantoneLIVE platform to support a wider range of packaging applications and help designers and suppliers easily visualize on-screen how colour palettes will appear in production,” said Adrián Fernández, General Manager, Pantone. “The addition of the new libraries to PantoneLIVE makes UV flexo printing with Pantone colours on labels and cartons much easier by providing printers with the official Pantone spectral targets.”


PantoneLIVE is an end-to-end colour communication ecosystem designed to bridge the gap in digital colour communication between brands/designers and their print, packaging or manufacturing supply chains. Leveraging the Cloud, PantoneLIVE ensures Pantone colour consistency from design through final production by setting achievable expectations of the entire supply chain. The new libraries include: Metalized Paper Label with White Ink – UV Flexo; Clear Film with Varnish – UV Flexo; Clear Film with Base White Varnish – UV Flexo; Clear Film on Clear Plastic Bag – UV Flexo; Clear Film on White Base – UV Flexo; and Recycled Carton Board with Varnish – UV Flexo.
