HMG Paints Yellow

HMG maintains an unrivalled colour library of more than 250,000 colours and can produce paints in various colour ranges including; agricultural, decorative, industrial, commercial vehicle, pantone, NCS dimensions, RAL & British standard.

The colour library is the hub for colour control and formulation, and the team of highly trained colour experts provide over 300 custom matches every month for a range of 60+ distributors and other customers. There is no minimum order volume for the HMG colour matching service and the final colour can be used across a vast majority of HMG bases.

In order to do this, we utilise a spectrophotometer, which uses a Xenon bulb to measure colour close to daylight, and state of the art equipment for colour comparison and formulation. All our colours are formulated with the least metameric pigment combination to ensure consistency throughout different illuminants.

Along with colour matching the HMG Colour Library is responsible for the various HMG tinting ranges including the innovative UNIT LITE system. The system and software was developed entirely in house after listening to the needs of our distributor network. You can see more about the system below.


"Ever since 1930 HMG Paints have been obsessed with colour, we still even have our first ever colour formulation book in the archives. We understand it's importance to the customer and our QA and Colour Matching procedures ensure accurate matches across a variety of systems."
