The metameric mismatch limits for two industrial colorant sets, a set for Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene polymers and a set for an acrylic enamel paint system, were determined for a reference illuminant, D65 and test illuminants of FS42, FN40, and Illuminant A. An overlap in color gamuts was found in all cases of similar test conditions between the two sets. Trends in the size, shape, and location of the gamuts were illustrated in 1976 CIE u'v' color space. The results show vastly dissimilar gamuts for all three of the test illuminants.
