AMS-STD-595 will eventually replace FED-STD-595 as the definitive color reference for government procurement, but both are currently in active use during what will be a multi-year transitional period. This bundle provides fan decks for the latest version of each standard, so there will be no question whether or not you have the correct version.
The AMS-STD-595A Fan Deck is supplied as a pair of fan decks. The first is 10 x 2 inches in size, containing 66 pages of samples, each sample being 2-inches by 0.625 inches. The second Supplemental Fan contains 38 full-page color samples, each 2-inches by 4.625-inches. Both fan decks together provide the 692 colors that comprise AMS-STD-595A, and both are bound with a single heavy-duty fastener, allowing the samples to be easily fanned out for comparison purposes.
The FED-STD-595C Fan Deck is a book containing 65-pages of samples, with 10 samples per page, comprising all 650 FED-STD-595C colors. It is bound with a single heavy-duty screw-fastener, allowing the samples to also be easily fanned out for comparison purposes. Each color sample is 2.0 x .625 inches in size.
Note:Neither fan deck should be used QC or Inspection purposes -- that is the job of individual color chips.
