Re: RLM color question

The number 27 or 04 only marked the tone of the color, not the use or corresponding composition for it, so in other words there could have been one 04 and one 27 for metal surfaces, once for canvas/wood and so on but they would both be called 04 and 27 respectively. The compostion, properties and use was indicated in a (four digit?) number that determined these things and was placed in front of the numbers we know as the RLM colors. I'm writing from memory here but I can always check it out further if you're interested.

Cheers! / Anders
