Pantone® Matching System

With driers - ready to print

Since 1963 the PANTONE® Matching System has developed to the standard in terms of colour communication. The colour guides are available as PANTONE® Formula Guide C for coated and PANTONE® Formula Guide U for uncoated material.

Despite identical recipes in both guides, it was not observed whether the colour shades can optically be evaluated as identical. Concerning the arrangement of colours, pure ink mixings are in the middle of the guide. Further up the shades are brightened with transparent white, further down black ink is added – therefore darkened.  

The Pantone® Formula Guide ink mixing system consists of 13 basic inks, black and transparent white.
