RAL Classic colors
RAL Classic is a collection of 213 colors. 188 of them are body colors, 2 are micaceous iron colors, 5 are daylight luminous colors and 15 others are pearlescent colors.
The RAL Classic colors have a 4-digit number in combination with the letters 'RAL' (e.g. RAL 1028). The first digit is a system code number (1: yellow, 2: orange, 3: red, 4: violet, 5: blue, 6: green, 7: grey, 8: brown and 9: white and black shades). The remaining 3 digits are chosen sequentially. The name of a color shade (e.g. 'Melon yellow' for RAL 1028) is an auxiliary designation. For a definite identification of a color one should use both in order to avoid confusion caused by possible transposition of digits.
