Festool Paint Color(s)
« on: November 04, 2012, 08:48 AM »
I am looking for paint swatches/ numbers that align with the Festool Green, Blue, Systainer Grey.

Has anyone found this or gone to Sherwin-Williams and been able to match them perfectly?

Glidden professional matched a latch for me a couple of years ago and it's spot on.

I can't help with Sherwin Williams, but if you are looking to match a latch there is a Benjamin Moore color:

You can get the paint codes from Festool, if you ask nicely...

I found that out after the fact.  When I painted my Festo chain mortiser Festool colors, I took my router up to my local mom and pop paint store.

She was able to match them almost perfectly in an industrial oil based enamel for me.

I found the following Sherwin Williams page that lists their paint colors by RAL code:

RAL.    SW Name
7035   Light Gray   
6018   Yellow Green
5004   Black Blue

I haven't tried this yet, but will pick up some samples this week to see how close they are.

As stated most paint stores can use a calibrator to get the formula for their or your chosen paint brand.

And Makita Color

If you don't like Signatures, just go to Look and Layout and tick No Signatures.

The green is a 'Sweet pea' with BM.  The grey is a custom color with BM.  I have cans of them in my supply somewhere.  I can dig up the grey and give you the BM codes if you need them for the match they made for me.
