5 Color characteristic: Saturation ACCcolor systemColor characteristic: SaturationSaturation of a color corresponds to its intensity or ‘richness’. The greater the color content, or amount of color pigment it exhibits, the greater the saturation, the stronger the color.Low saturation High saturation
6 Color characteristics: Lightness ACC color systemColor characteristics: Lightnesshigh LightnessAll colors vary from light to dark. Lightness tells us how light or dark a color is. The more light reflected the lighter the color is perceived. A light color has a high lightness.low Lightness

8 C0.50.30 ACC ACC color system Clear color communication The ACC color system offers an easy to handle and accurate color language for easiness in color choice. ACC is a clear and constant tool that can be used to communicate about colors, without actually showing the physical color samples. The ACC system is recognized as a language that professional users of colors understand.
13 ACC ACC color system Color identification Color identification The ACC codes are a result of scientific measurement and calculation taken human perception into account. Quality is warranted with a short code that identifies all colors in an accessible way by means of color documentation and visualization tools. In short the ACC system enables the customer to identify or specify colors exactly, irrespective the paint product.
15 ACC color system Explanation exercise: Harmony in color can be realized in two different ways:Harmony by analogyA color will always harmonize with itself and with shades or tints of its own hue. Eg. A0 colors or J0 colors.Harmony by contrastA contrast implies a large difference:Contrast in hue:A versus JA versus JA versus JA versus JContrast in saturationA versus A or J versus JContrast in lightnessA versus A or J versus JContrast in hue, saturation and lightnessA versus J or A versus JThe maximum contrast is achieved when two colors differ by the maximum number of ‘steps’ in hue, saturation and lightness.A versus J or A versus J
