RAL color table

In the first half of the 20th century the world paint and varnish industry experienced a peculiar boom in development. There were new technologies that made it possible to master the production of various paint materials of various colors and shades. There was a need to systematize the color palette and combine them into a single standard.

European manufacturers of paint and varnish products appealed to the German Supply Committee to develop a single color standard, which was first published in 1927 and was named RAL. Since then, the developer of this standard systematically, based on market conditions, develops new ones and supplements existing color schemes.
