AS2700

The Australian Standard AS2700 “Colour Standards for General Purposes” consists of 206 standard colours for Specifiers to select reference paint colours for pipeline identification, line marking, safety demarcation and other industrial purposes. AS2700 was originally devised and formulated in the DuluxGoup Australia Colour Services laboratory, and has been in use in Australia since 1985. It is extensively referred to in many other Australian Standards, such as the AS1345: “Identification of the Contents Of Pipes, Conduits and Ducts”, and the AS1318: “SAA Industrial Safety Colour Code”. The AS2700 colour standards, and all associated collateral, are the intellectual property of SAI Global. A colour chart and individual swatches may be purchased from their on-line shop at http://infostore.saiglobal.com/store. Our tintable single pack and two pack topcoats are available in all the AS2700 colours.

Dulux Protective Coatings Colour Accuracy Statement

Whilst every effort has been made to accurately match the colours depicted on our website to actual product colours, Dulux Protective Coatings advises that there may be colour variation between these. Variation may be due to a combination of factors, including:

  • Computer monitor (make, model and screen type)
  • Screen settings (resolution, contrast and brightness control)
  • Room lighting (eg. incandescent, fluorescent, halogen or natural light)

Furthermore, a coating can exhibit variation in perceived colour from a given colour standard depending on gloss level and application method. Another complication is metamerism, a phenomenon in which the perceived colour changes, depending on the light source under which it is viewed; for example a swatch of a product tinted to a particular yellow can appear to be an exact match to the standard colour swatch under sunlight, but appear to have a very different tone under an incandescent or fluorescent light. This metamerism may be due differences in resin or tinter types used in each sample.

Please note that the Quantum FX and Micaceous Iron Oxide colours can also exhibit additional variation in appearance due to the metallic flake pigments they contain. The perceived colour of metallic pigmented paints varies widely according to viewing angle, light source and application method due to reflective metal flake in the formulation.

For more information about colour, please read our Tech Note on Colour Accuracy.
