Paint code
« on: June 07, 2019, 06:48:24 PM »
Hello all, I'm new to this board. I hope I'm putting this in the right thread. My question is, does anyone now the paint code of Transcon Blue? I am willing to bet there is a PPG code on it some where, I just haven't been able to find it yet. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried calling a PPG paint store or agent? Ask about a fleet colour, give them the fleet name and see what they come up with.  I have a fleet colour book for R-M BASF but shows mostly Canadian fleets. If not listed, I can call the lab but only between business hours and would only get my paint line info.

Thanks for the reply. I work for a paint distributor, we sell AkzoNobel (Sikkens, Lesonal, Utech) and Matrix. Truth be told our fleet colors are not strong. However if I had a manufacturer code or a competitor code I most likely could cross reference it. To answer you question no I have not contacted a PPG distributor. I have looked through a PPG fleet book, but I was not able to properly identify the color with. Once again thanks and any help is appreciated.

I will try on Monday, if I get a BASF # you might cross reference it, if I don't get that, I can try to call my PPG paint girl, she might have it. Is is from the 1980s era?

Recalling the era? Is it possible that TRANSCON an early adopter in use of IMRON?
(Yes, it a more difficult coating to use, but...)

Quite likely they may have, a big and great product of the day for sure!! What ever paint line they used, there should a number that will cross reference to another paint line.

I got curious and found a couple Imron industrial colours that are pretty darn close.

Bottom of page, kinda hard to see, use zoom.
