At IFS we have over 55,000 colors in our database, so it’s safe to say we can probably find the color or effect you need. We have thousands of standard colors such as blacks, whites, browns, greys, silvers, bronzes, with every variation in shade as well as those with textures, varying gloss levels or metallic added. Contact us to order your color cards.

Our color capability also includes ANSI, Federal Standards, Pantone matches and many more. We also boast the full RAL color collection –all 192 colors – and many colors in between, from ocean blues and forest greens to bright pinks and purples and daring orange and reds. There's also soft pastels, glow in the dark neons, nostalgic musty tones and more.

Whatever color you choose, make sure you select a product chemistry suitable for the end use. We have thousands of colors and many can be made in different product technologies so choose carefully. simply selecting the color without thinking about what the product needs to do (for example using an interior coating for an exterior application that needs to stand up to humidity or salt) often leads to dissatisfied customers blaming the powder or the applicator. Product selection is just as important as color!

Gloss

We can vary the gloss of most of our products, from flat mattes to high gloss sheens – whatever you need. Talk to us about your gloss requirements.

Metallic

IFS metallics are usually bonded to ensure a better quality finish and improved spray out. Whether its fine shimmery silvers, or a chunky look, we have a great selection of metallic effects to choose from.

Texture

Textured powders are a great way to add an additional dimension to a product. We have several textures available in a vast number of colors – including metallics – that can be as fine as confectioners sugar, or as heavy as an anti-skid powder. Talk to us about your needs.

Special effect

As well as metallics and textures, IFS also offers a wide range of special effects, including hammertone, veins and multi-component effects. Check out some of the effects on the IFS color card or talk to your representative about your particular needs.

Custom

We understand that sometimes your customer needs a very specific shade. That’s no problem. We can create custom color matches – including custom gloss, metallics of special effects, quickly and efficiently. The best way to do it is to send us a color standard or physical sample of what you’d like us to match to. We’ve had everything from paint and fabric swatches, to metal parts and even a sneaker! Our color experts will quickly create a color match and send you samples. Talk to us about your custom color requirements.

Color charts

We have a range of color charts available for you. The IFS color chart gives a broad range of colors and effects available, with some of our most popular colors featured. There is also an RAL card, an architectural card and many more samples. With 55,000 colors matches, we obviously can’t put everything on our cards, so if you don’t see exactly what you need, ask! Contact us to order your copied today.
