Munsell Government Color Standards Ensure Safety, Reliability and Value

Government agencies from agriculture to aeronautics and electronics rely on the ease and accuracy of Munsell color standards.  For more than 70 years, Munsell standard color charts have helped aerospace suppliers, food processors and manufacturers of wire and cable apply color standards to comply with government regulations by accurately communicating color standards.
Government color standards ensure the safety and reliability of electrical products.  If you’re in the electrical or wire and cable industry, you know how important the right color is to worker safety and product reliability.  Munsell Color coding charts ensure safety and reliability by providing standard color coding for wire, cable and insulation manufacturers.

Munsell’s exacting standard color codes are specified by numerous government agencies and trade associations including National Electrical and Medical Imaging Equipment Manufacturers Association (NEMA) and American National Standards Institute (ANSI), which popularized “ANSI safety colors and ANSI grays”.

Munsell standard color charts meet UDSA specifications for color sorting and grading. Food color standards keep consumers safe and ensure crop value. Whether you’re harvesting crops or processing food, color provides valuable insights.  Munsell standard color charts simulate color insights such as ripeness and readiness for processing.  More importantly, color can impact the value of your crops. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and numerous private food processors rely on Munsell USDA standard color charts for accurate grading and sorting of food.
