The RAL COLOUR FEELING 2025+ color matrix from RAL is an important guide for color trends for various industries. This year it is themed CARE + COLLABORATE and includes a 15-part color palette for applications in architecture, design, crafts and industry. For the fourth year in a row, the high-performance plastic polycarbonate from Covestro has been colored in the new shades by the color specialists at the company´s Color and Design Centers. As with this year's program, the color palette once again includes a haptic experience - the RAL Trendbox. Covestro is also the official partner for this box with a total of 75 material samples, as are the companies Tiger Coatings, Object Carpet and Gabriel. Whether it's mood boards or concept visualizations - the elements of the Trendbox offer many design options based on color standards.
Dr. Christopher Stillings, Vice President and Global Head of Color & Design in the Engineering Plastics segment, offers support to designers: "Covestro is not only a pioneer in the research and development of material technologies, but also has strong color and design teams worldwide. Our collaboration with RAL highlights the precision that our polycarbonate materials offer for color matching and the leading expertise of our color and CMF experts. Together, we are setting standards." The project is another example of the company's commitment to developing solutions and services in the CMF (Color, Material, Finish) design field.
"RAL offers professional color charts for the industrial design sector, which requires the highest level of color accuracy," says Markus Frentrop, Global Head of RAL Colours. "With the color matrix and RAL Trendbox, we offer designers a comprehensive color and material approach as part of our continued collaboration." The 15 trend colors in the RAL Trendbox are each available as D6 single sheets, plastic color samples, powder-coated metal sheets and designed textile surfaces. They can also be combined with each other. "The color effects between the different material types are precisely coordinated by RAL and the cooperation partners," says Markus Frentrop.
To ensure accurate and fast color matching, Covestro's Color and Design Centers in Italy, Thailand, India and China worked together with RAL on solutions and were able to complete the precise matching of the 15 trend colors in a short time. Covestro also uses the RAL color codes in its CMF trend reports for the automotive, electronics and appliance industries.Live presentation on September 28, 2023
