Caroline Gouttebarge studied at ITECH and now teaches colorimetry in the laboratory for students and industrials. Color is present all over the world. It is applied in our laboratory in different fields: formulation (paint, cosmetics…), textiles, plastics, leather. We use different methods to characterize color: We use softwares for formulation/correction, reproducing a color via visual test, etc.
