British Standard (BS)

The British Standards for colours are the standard coloursin the United Kingdom, which is incorporated under a Royal Charter (National Standards Body). The standard colours are used in identification, coding and other special purposes for building and decorative paints. The most used British Standards for coloursare BS381C,BS2660, BS5252 andBS4800.


RAL Colour System

RAL is a coding system to define colours, for example coating colours. The system was developed in 1927 in Germany and stands for ReichsAusschuss für Lieferbedingungen. The colour definitions are the industry standard in many markets, such as construction and traffic safety.


Natural Colour System (NCS)

Natural Colour System is an international colour system for design, architecture, production, research and education and describes colours exactly as we see them - independent of language and culture. It is logical and easy to understand and has become a widely accepted global colour standard.


Colour Spectrophotometer

Spectrophotometers are colour measurement devices used to capture and evaluate colour. They can measure just about anything, including liquids, plastics, paper, metal and fabrics, and help ensure that colour remains consistent from conception to delivery. The spectral reflectance curve provided by a spectrophotometer is commonly known as the colour’s "fingerprint”.
