Converting Colours from FED-STD to RAL

Q: Could you please inform us what European RAL Color is eqivalent to Federal Standard Color No. 13538 (Aviation Yellow). Thanks already for your support.

A: Unfortunately, I am not able to give you the equivalent RAL color, but most paint companies have color cards and you might be able to ask your local company to compare the colors and give you the closest matches. Your local paint store will probably not be able to assist you, but the head office of the paint company will.  Bear in mind that when you ask for a close color match, you also will want to ask them for a match in the gloss value.
