NCS A4 sheets (semimatt)
Colour samples in different formats, ideal for use when larger or smaller samples of colour are required for colour identification, selection, specification and design.
NCS Colour Samples are fully coated with one colour per sample and can be ordered in a Matt, Semi-Matt or Glossy finish. With separate NCS Colour Samples you can illustrate the right colour with repeated NCS Notations on the back for accurate colour communication. Available in a range of sizes from small to large, they are easy to use and attach to your specifications and for your colour designs.
NCS Gloss Scale is compiled in a fan deck in small format where the colour samples can be fanned out, isolated from other colours and gloss levels and placed against different surfaces. Four colours from the greyscale are included, based on the lightness distribution in the NCS Colour Space. The colours are white, light grey, medium grey and black. For each colour area, seven gloss levels are given, ranging from full matt to high gloss. Each sample has information on the name of the gloss level, the colour sample's gloss value, NCS Notation and the colour sample's approximate lightness values, which in turn facilitate selection and comparison of a chromatic colour. A small white cloth is included to help keep the gloss samples clean from fingerprints and dust particles which are highly visible on glossy surfaces. It is sufficient to sweep lightly over the samples, without rubbing. In order to preserve the surface on all matt samples, do not rub the cloth.
The large A4 and A6 colour samples are available in Semi-Matt and Glossy finish. The small A9 colour samples are available in Semi-Matt finish and the Matt samples are available in the format 5 x 14 cm. The samples may be ordered as refills for NCS Box (A6 format) and NCS Album (A9 format) or for other projects and needs.
