Use Integra Adhesives website to match colors to a particular stone or solid surface sheet
Integra Adhesive‘s labs are state of the art using various optical tools to accurately formulate the correct recipe of pigments for an optically perfect match every time. Integra also works with the major solid surface and engineered stone manufacturers to obtain samples of new material colors they develop. Using their lab, they can quickly create color matches for these new color styles that are constantly coming out.
Integra has made an online tool. They also have a slick mobile app available through both app stores.
Step 1. Identify the type of material you have and check the box.
Step 2. After the box is checked, you’ll see available materials.
Step 3. Select the brand of material and this will display all the sheet colors that Integra has matched for that brand.
Sometimes there are two colors of Integra Adhesive that match to a particular sheet.
Other things of note when using the online color matching tool
All colors are available in the XI Surface Bonder formulation.
“U” next to the color indicates this is available in the ULTRA (UV/Outdoor) formula
“Z” next to the color indicates this is available in the ZERO (High Viscosity/Non-Sag) formula
” * ” next to a color indicates a tight seam required (Typically indicated on Match 2 colors)
Use the mobile app
They even have a mobile app to color match for when you’re on-the-go. The mobile app provides an additional feature of showing colors and swatches that are adjacent in color hue to the color in question. For example, the mobile app can help if a match to a particular sheet happens to be a custom color, but the job only requires a few tubes.
Use the app to see the two colors that are directly adjacent in hue to the matching color. This may be an option for a fabricator that is in a pinch and the job doesn’t’ warrant a full case of one color. A tight seam and careful mitering will be necessary to make this work.
