Bullseye Billets/Pantone Transparent Color Selector Table

Postby marykaynitchie » Mon Jun 27, 2011 11:14 am

Hi all,

I just did some homework for a customer who needed to know the equivalent Pantone Transparent Color Selector number that approximately matches a single thickness of a Bullseye Billet. (This table will be of little use to people who are using billets in any other thicknesses, by the way.)

So I thought I would share it in case it is helpful to anyone else.

Comparing Bullseye Billets to Pantone Transparent Color Selector

001858-0065 Light Rhubarb Shift Tint / T805-4-3
001859-0065 Rhubarb Shift Tint / T825-3-1
001864-0065 Gray Blue Tint / T225-3-4
001867-0065 Olive Smoke Tint / T005-3-1
001877-0065 Olivine Tint / T315-3-3
001920-0065 Lemon Tint / T015-2-4
001932-0065 Fuchsia Tint / T145-2-4
001934-0065 Copper Tint / T075-3-4
001948-0065 Purple Blue Tint / T185-1-4
001964-0065 Lavender Gray Tint / T145-3-4
001977-0065 Pine Green Tint / T315-3-4

The 19mm thickness of these billets approximately matches the 2mm thickness of
these Pantone Transparent Selector tiles. Matches were made by comparing a billet sample to the Pantone tile, removed from the Pantone Selector page, and viewed against overcast daylight, coming through a skylight. NOTE: Hue and value can both change dramatically if billet is used in thicker or thinner sections than 19mm. Referring to actual samples is recommended.
