RAL COLOURS

The history of RAL Colours began in a period of economic transformation: the first series-production automobile was being manufactured, the age of the talking movies had begun and an economic recovery in Germany had resulted in a rise in prosperity. RAL set the first binding standards in 1927 with a collection of the 40 most widely used colours in industry and public life. 40 colours were defined for the first time and uniquely classified using RAL numbers. Today, the 2,530 RAL Colours are a defining worldwide standard used in industry, trade and design, as well as by professional users of colour.

RAL DESIGN SYSTEM plus - FANTASY BECOMES COLOUR

We have redefined the RAL colour system and the RAL colour sample systems. And precisely designed to meet the requirements of craftsmen, architects, designers and producers. So that you can determine and clearly define the optimum colour more quickly and easily in any work situation. A clear, international understanding of colours supports the multilingualism in German, English, French, Russian and Chinese. The expanded colour spectrum with 1.825 shades and associative colour designations increases its creative potential. RAL DESIGN SYSTEM plus - the plus in design freedom. When fantasy becomes colour, you can rely on RAL.

RAL CLASSIC - THE COLOUR STANDARD

The 4-digit RAL colours have been the standard for choosing colours for more than 95 years now. At the beginning the colour collection included 40 different colours. Its number has risen to 215 today. The basic collection for matt colour shades is called RAL 840-HR, the one for glossy colour shades RAL 841-GL. Both basic collections contain colour samples that are being used by important institutions to cover a wide range of applications and are constantly adapted to the requirements of the industry. The registers are being used as colour samples for designs. They also contain safety- and signalling colours and fulfil the colour requirements of DIN regulation.

RAL EFFECT - THE INNOVATIVE COLOUR PALETTE FOR INDUSTRIAL AND PRODUCT DESIGN

With its EFFECT collection, RAL fulfils the wish for greater variety in colour design in the industrial sector. RAL EFFECT comprises 420 solid colours and, as a particular highlight, 70 metallic colours. It is the first collection from RAL to be based on waterborne paint systems.
