The colors in the Aerospace Material Specification set have no official names, just five-digit numbers. Any names given are generic. 

The first number can be 1,2 or 3 and indicates the level of gloss/sheen: 
1 = Full Gloss 
2 = Semi-gloss 
3 = Flat 

The second number of the code indicates a general color classification group; 
0 = Brown
1 = Red
2 = Orange
3 = Yellow
4 = Green
5 = Blue
6 = Grey 
7 = Other (white, black, violet, metallic)  
8 = Fluorescent 

The other numbers indicate the intensity. Lower numbers are darker colors, higher numbers, - lighter colors. The numbers are not consecutive and contain gaps to allow addition of new colors.

In February 2017 FED-STD-595C, dated 16 January 2008, was superseded by SAE AMS-STD-595 "colors used in government procurement", and is now administered by SAE INTERNATIONAL.

Note that for the most part colors from 595A,B and C remain unchanged. New colors have been added to each revision. More information on the standard is a avaialble Here

Not all colors in the standard are defined at all 3 gloss/sheen levels hence a color chip 1xxxx in the standard doesn't imply that there is a color chip for 3xxxx. However, "virtual" colors built on the principle "same color, but different gloss/sheen" is a widespread practice.

We carry paint for most of the 600+ Aerospace Material Specification Colors at the designated gloss/sheen. Should you require a different gloss/sheen level you can indicate this in the comments during checkout or contact us at (972) 243-7386.
