MANCHESTER, UK — HMG Paints recently announced that a range of 70 new metallic colors have been made available by the company for its HMG ColourBase Colour Box. The new metallic colors are available in a range of HMG products and are suitable for industries such as commercial vehicle, and agricultural and construction equipment, among others.

“Our color team have worked tirelessly to bring these new metallic shades to our distributor network and customers, the new colors have been developed based on extensive collaboration with our customers and partners,” said Danny Cleary, HMG Sales Director. “The new metallic colors are a great compliment to the existing 2,400 colors and will be popular across a number of industries.”

The new range provides enhanced color-matching capability for HMG’s customers and distribution network. With the system utilizing HMG’s existing Unit Lite colorants, there is no need for expensive investment, and the colors are available simply via a software update of ColourBase, the bespoke HMG color formulation software that already boasts over 90,000 colors.

The ColourBase Colour Box contains over 2400 color chips, displayed in chromatic order within 20 fan decks. The ColourBase Colour Box is a multi-function tool, in the sense that not only each color has a chromatic code that identifies its position in the color sequence, but it also corresponds to a color existing on the market for reference.

The colors contained in the box, available in a counter top version or carry case, are sourced from a number of popular color systems, including RAL, British Standard, Commercial Vehicle Fleet Colours, Agricultural, Afnor and more.
