Hi Jeremy,

I recently bought my first Hymac and have begun fixing it up.

Could you please supply information about the color codes and any tips regarding the primer you used. I would like to get as close as possible to the original color.

/Hans

Hi Hans :wave: there is no colour code for the paint that I am aware of as such I asked Tony Flint for the colour that he got matched up by Cromadex who are paint manufactures; The supplier is Cromadex Akzo Nobel 0121 558 5005 paint code: 233BM3437100 Flint Services Yellow, if you are going to spray the paint then ask for it in the 222 Fast Air Drying High Gloss, the paint is also available in aerosols although there is a minimum order. There is a slight variation in the shades that I have seen machines painted over the years so if you are restoring a Hymac and you are unsure my advice would be to contact a local commercial paint manufacturer and ask them to colour match it for you.
Their website is https://www.akzonobel.com/about-us/who- ... d/cromadex
I hope that helps you and good luck with your machine. :thumbup:

Hans; here is a list of the paints that they manufacture; http://www.cromadex.com/products-servic ... eets-msds/ in regards to the primer I would advise the 2100 series grey primer. :thumbup: They are a very helpful company so if you phone them up they will advise the best type of paint to use for your application.
