      Re: ral-pantone

      This a quote from the above quotation:
      All the years I have been working with colours I have never found an exact correlation between these two colour systems [RAL & Pantone]. The best way is to sit down with a RAL and a Pantone colour chart and look for similar colours. If you have a spectrophotometer test the colours on it. The Ral colour range is German. If you go to www,ral,de\de/ral_farben\farbkarten/ral_classic,php this will tell you all you need to know about RAl colours. Alternatively if you just want a colour chart (not exact shade) with RAL colours on it. Speak to a friendly paint supplier. (a European Industrial paint supplier is your best bet).

          Re: ral-pantone

          Does anyone have any idea where I can find out what color RAL-7035 is? Is there a comparable Pantone color?

            Search google for "pantone ral converter pdf". There's a table at first place.

            According to this table RAL 7035 = Pantone 421

                  Admin, the registration process has 2 fields that need to be filled in seperately and there is a quite difficult Captcha even for real users. Why am I not allowed to post information with links that can help this discussion.

                    Hi DPT2 a warm welcome, thanks for the link, is it your site? - It does say linking is ok, but copying is not.

                    Users have to have several posts to be able to place links to avoid the million spammers trying to make our lives better with cheap shoes, fancy phones and knock-off iPads, lol.

                    Maybe Robert or John would be able to check this and put it in the resources section?

                      PANTONE and RAL are different color systems, they do not match, but it is possible to find the closest colors. There is a software for Mac OS X which enables all color conversions between PANTONE / RAL and HKS systems - Colorlinker.

                            Hi,

                            I have looked on many conversion charts and am unable to convert certain Pantone colours to RAL equivalent. I'm looking for :

                            Pantone 3285 C
                            Pantone 285 C
                            Pantone 266 C
                            Pantone 376 C

                            Please let me know if you can do this with your special convertor. Is it possible to let me know what the special conversion programme is?

                            Thank you

                              Hi Bart (name sounds Dutch),
                              You mention that you have a chart comparing Pantone and RAL. I've a great interest in this chart and like to understand how I can get one copy. Thanks for your reply to hans.schrama@akzonobel.com
                              best, Hans
