Base Colors

Base colors are just that, a basic palette of colors from the primary color wheel. These are used to custom match anything you wish. They are opaque and ready to sample or specify for your spandrel or interior cladding projects. Available for Fabricators to buy and perform their own custom matches, or used by us to create virtually any color you may want on your glass for your building.

Please reference the color numbers and names when asking for samples or placing an order.

Standard Colors

Standard colors are tried and true colors for the glass industry. Actually, they are hold over colors from way back in the day when glass light transmission was very low. Which meant spandrel coatings needed to be very dark to actually affect color. Still, today they are used as much as ever.

Vitro Harmonizing Colors -"Try Them On Starphire™!"

In partnership with Vitro/PPG IdeaScapes, we have created these great colors to harmonize with Vitro's blue and green tinted glass. Maybe you aren't aware but standard clear glass has a color cast to it, green to greenish blue. We are the best in the industry when it comes to compensating for that color cast to get you the most pure color despite the inherent color of glass. Even with that, it is an extra color we contend with. Try using Vitro's Starphire™ low iron glass for the most pure and clear substrate for colors that will amaze you.

We can absolutely match any fan deck chip you may have from any paint manufacturer, such as house paint. We've even been known to match clothing and other various items, try us. We currently have a database of over 10,000 matches we have done over the years. In that, we haven't even scratched the surface of what we can do. Be sure to specify what glass substrate you wish the match to be on as it could be noticeably different on different glass types, even clear glass. Please note that when viewed on different monitors these colors will show slight to dramatic differences unless the given monitor has been calibrated.  Every attempt has been made to ensure the above colors are as close to the actual sample on glass as possible. Please contact us to request a free sample on your glass of choice.

FAQ's

Help, my sample you sent me doesn’t look like the color chip I told you to match!

There are several reasons why your sample my not be as you expected:

  1. Did you tell us the correct glass substrate to match on? Color will vary by different glass types, even clear glass.
  2. Did you pick your color off a computer monitor? If so, we took that information and used the actual paint chip to match your color. One monitor to the next will be wildly off in color.
  3. Did you pick your color off our website? If you did, just as in point two, monitors are extremely unreliable for color and that is why we ask that you get a sample on glass. We can help make that color more of what you want.

I have an ICD color name, can you send me a sample based on that?

No, unfortunately. There are times when a color name may be used twice or more. What matters is our color number which will have a format like this: X-XXXX “Color Name.”

I’m looking for an ICD color number on the website but can’t find it, does this mean you do not offer it?

Not at all! It is very hard to represent all the 10,000+ custom color matches we have done over the years on our website. Often, we change the color palettes we show on our website (except for Standard and Primary) to show the idea that we can do a wide range of colors. Give us a call or email and we will look your color number up in our database and have a sample on glass sent immediately. 1.360.546.2286 or icd@icdcoatings.com

Why are ICD color numbers so important?

Our color numbers are specific to colors formulated by us. Any other number, from another paint manufacturer for example, will not tell us what our exact formula is. In fact, it won’t tell us anything at all. Often, we have color matched other paints such as ceramic enamel, and we may have a cross reference to our number from their system. If not, we will have to rematch that color in our system and with a sample to match from. It is very important to note that the name of the color, Sky Blue for example, will not tell us anything as well. Some colors may have the same name. Colors will never have the same ICD color number. This is why the number matters more than the cute name we came up with.
