Cross reference RAL to FED-STD-595
I am searching for a cross reference of RAL color coding to the FED-STD-595. Is anyone aware of such a cross reference? If so where can one obtain a copy?
I am specifically looking to cross reference:
Black: RAL 9005
Green: RAL 6016 (for thermosetting plastics - duroplasts)
Green: RAL 6025 (for thermoplastic)
to the FED-STD-595.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.Bill S [last name deleted for privacy by Editor]

I am also looking for a link between Federal Specification 595 and Ral, Pantone or British Standard Colours, in particular Fed std 595 colour 36320. What was the response to previously asked questions? can you help?
Many ThanksGlen C [last name deleted for privacy by Editor]

Sorry that we don't have quite the answer you are looking for, but the following should help some at least --
- letter 12333 tells you about Fed-Std-595 and how and where to get the sample book both through the government and a commercial source.
- Our Ral vs. Pantone FAQ explains these, gives info on where to get chips and standards for RAL and Pantone, and offers a dew comments on the comparison question. Good luck.
