BASEL, Switzerland - Ciba Specialty Chemicals has extended its color-management services to include color visualization of 3D objects. A cooperation agreement with ColorViz for exclusive distribution rights worldwide of Mosaic and Indigo software enables Ciba the opportunity to offer a very extensive range of color-management services from creation to realization.

"This progressive color-visualization software can be linked with Ciba brand COLIBRI color-formulation software, allowing users to view their materials immediately on the required objects, thereby reducing prototype design time from weeks to hours," said Sonia Megert Marshall, global head of Color Services, Ciba Specialty Chemicals.
