Eddy Broekaart – color scientist

After working in offshore, civil engineering, starch separation and polymer research, I ended up in color research. As a color scientist I have studied the theory, mainly in color physics to understand color. What is the relationship between light and color, how to create (the right) color, how to measure color, discoloration, etc. With more than 20 years experience on research and application for coloring plastics I would like to help interested parties with color training and consultation.
