« on: April 18, 2019, 07:42 PM »
Does anyone know who makes custom laminate colors that would make me some in #4DFF19? so it matches my stuff?

@JimmyB1775 - finding someone who can produce this material is the easy part - coming up with a purchase quantity that makes it affordable will be the problem. If it's purely decorative, you may want to consider spray painting an automotive color matched coating or have a commercial shop do it for you.

Curious what your application is and how many sheets you need?

Check out Formica 6901-58 Vibrant Green not exact but pretty close.

I'd be careful with the colour specification. I know that Egger laminates give the NCS and RAL colour codes so you can colour match... and neither is exact (just the closest in the ranges). I'd be very wary of using RGB hex colour code for colour matching the laminate.

No idea and no idea.  I’ll figure it out when I make my next top to something.  And Hans, I’m a fes distributor in AK.  Send us a rail square sample!

Sorry for the out of focus picture.  The color does not match the Systainers perfectly but does match the dials on the parallel guides.  Works for me.

I just used the stock formica "bright green" IIRC, it matches well:
