When people hear the words powder coating, they think of an industrial industry where color does not necessarily matter. That could not be more untrue. Bright colors are used on industrial platforms for safety purposes, and there are a large number of industries (such as construction) that utilize a wide range of colors to achieve different architectural styles. Powder coating patio furniture is a great way to improve the durability of your patio furniture or change the color scheme of your outdoor area.
Houston Powder Coaters offers 130 different colors for customers to choose from, and they can even special-order RAL colors or color match an existing color with your color swatch. When speaking with HPC about color options, you may hear terms such as RAL, CMYK, RGB, or HEX codes. To break it down, these are color matching systems that define colors with specific codes. Every color standard system has its own unique code for all existing colors in its system. Each color matching system corresponds to certain industries. Powder coating systems and plastics use the RAL color system. CMYK stands for the four colors used during the printing process: cyan, magenta, yellow, and black (or key, hence the “K”). The CMYK color system is used in print media, such as magazines and books. RGB and HEX codes go hand-in-hand, as RGB is used in digital media. HEX codes are a way of inputting colors into an HTML code to get that visual on the screen. Without accurate conversion of one color system to another, the desired outcome may not be achieved.
