This RAL 4004 Colour is presented to you as a part of violet hues assortment on the RAL Classic colour chart. You will notice that all of these grouped colours follow this specific designation, which is based on four-digit number in combination with the letters "RAL".

The name Claret violet actually serves as additional, auxiliary designation, making the colour easier to remember. This naming system also provides additonal quality assurance preventing erroneous colour assigment due to number transposition.

◾ RAL 4004 to CMYK
In the CMYK colour system the RAL 4004 is composed by combining four primary tones of pigment. To achieve this exclusive "claret violet" colour tone, out of 100% maximum colour components, 30% cyan, 100% magenta, 30% yellow and 60% key (black) are used.
You can immediately see this result on this computer simulated CMYK diagram.
The mixture of these primary colours blends in the middle on a square space where all four different colour hue sheets overlap.
◾ RAL 4004 to RGB
The conversion of RAL 4004 into RGB colour space requres specific composition of red, green, and blue primary colours.
To construct hue matching "claret violet" colour from the RAL chart as close as possible, we use the following values ranging from 0 to 255 on the RGB colour system: 101 red, 30 green and 56 blue.
The three circle RGB diagram here provides illustrative example showing how red value stands out clearly in comparison to green and blue to construct this unique tone of colour. The RAL colour equivalent emerges in the very center, where all three primary colour circles overlap and combine.
