Euro NCS index 1950 original

A compact overview of all 1950 NCS colours. The new NCS index contains the 200 new colours and has larger colour samples and a superior design.

The empty spaces were removed, and the colours were distributed more evenly and systematically over the pages. Because of a clearer visual subdivision into grey, yellow (colour tones G80Y-Y70R), red (Y80R-R70B), blue (R80B-B70G) and green (B80G-G70Y) and thanks to the new in between pages, finding ones way through the 1950 NCS colour samples has become much faster.

Markings on the colour wheel as well as colour triangles at the bottom of every index page show the positions of the colour tones in the NCS system. The NCS index takes up only very little space and can easily be taken along. It contains a description of the NCS system and examples of colour combinations that are possible in the NCS system.
