My company like many other machines manufactures supplies our equipment with standard paint colors. Over the years we have been able to work with our vendors to provide paint color that is uniform throughout paint types and processes. However we have the occasional customer that requires a specific paint color (RAL). Whenever we change form our standard paint color to a non-standard color we run into problems with color differences.
Can anyone provide an example of a paint specification which if given to a vendor, no matter the coating process (Powder, Enamel or Polane spray) we can consistency receive paint that matches?
Since we utilize foreign sourcing we would prefer that the specification not be brand specific.
I have attached an example of our standard paint specification but as you can see it is specific to Sherwin-Williams which may not be readily available in all areas of the world.
