It is so called because the colour is the shade of grey from the specular micaceous hematite paint used for rustproofing iron and steel battleships. The darker of the two ship greys of our colour standard. A colour standardised in 1934.
Paints are handmade in our factory and very slight colour variations may occur. The printed colour label on the tin is an approximation of the paint shade and a guide only.
