NCS – Natural Colour System® is a logical colour system based on how humans see colours. The colour system allows accurate cross-industrial colour communication for designers and manufacturers, retailers and customers. All Teknos paints can be tinted according to NCS colours.
The Natural Colour System is based on the six elementary colours white, black, yellow, red, blue and green (W, S, Y, R, B, G)
All colours have a place in this three-dimensional model.
The NCS Colour Circle is a horizontal section through the middle of the colour space.
The colour NCS S 1070-Y10R has the
nuance 1070, i.e. 10% in blackness and 70% in chromaticness.
The hue of the colour is in this case
a yellow (Y) colour with 10% redness (R)
