Abstract:

The Department of Defense - Mapping, Charting, and Geodesy DOD-MCG Color Identification System for Lithographic Printing is broad enough in scope to include and catalog all colors in a logical, orderly arrangement. Under this system, lithographic colors are assigned numbers which are descriptive of the color values. The system is based on international values as seen by an international standard observer and illuminant. The CIE description of color is applied as the basis for color identification. This report also describes the means of applying color values to an ink formulation and specification system for the manufactureblending of color matched lithographic inks. The ink formulation is based on using eight basic colors plus black and white. Blending these in specified parts can produce virtually all ink colors.
