The Beauty of Colours

Many different colour systems are used for coloured metal products like RAL Classic Colours, RAL Design Colours, British Standards 381C/4800/5252, DIN 6164, NCS 1950 and many more. The mathematical definition of the particular colour is done by different descriptive colour systems like Cie L*a*b*, HLC, sRGB and others.

The following design examples for coated steel sheets orientate themselves to the Cie L*a*b* values of the specific colour. Some can be reviewed like RAL Classic Colours on wikipedia or British Standard Colours on The transformation to sRGB colours for processing the images are device depending. We used a common transformation programm to get reasonable results for sRGB and Hex values. Please consider the images for guidance only. The colours of the final coated product may not be as shown here espacially metallic colours cannot be shown adequately.

This is indeed a lot of information. Of course it is sufficient for most printing demands. To get a better understanding of the relationship between image resolution and image quality, have a look at the following pictures.
