Basic Color

 

The term basic color is mostly used in connection with the Pantone Matching System. The Pantone colors – since 2014 a total of 1755 colors – are mixed from 18 PANTONE basic colors in different mixing ratios. The 14 original basic colors had a four color extension  after the abolition of PANTONE GOE. These four new basic colors are PANTONE colors themselves, but are just as well used for mixing other PANTONE colors.
