Hi Nico, as the ETIM guidelines chapter 7.5.8. Colours in ETIM dictate: "Only “basic colours” are allowed in ETIM. Also, wood colours (like “Oak”) and material colours (like “Copper”) are permitted to be used in ETIM." See list of allowed metal basic colours attached.  So it seems that the list requested (by Aquatherm in Germany) is not complete and should be extended with at least several values. If the proper value is not listed, then I always advice to use "Other", never an incorrect value just to have something! If needed, please hand in a request to a local ETIM office (or take the step to join us a Global Industry Member 😊) One more comment: this main colour of course is most relevant for actual coloured fittings, to me it has no added value to say that a copper fitting is copper coloured. So maybe the best option would be to just leave the feature blank/empty as 'not applicable'. Customers looking for a copper fitting will look for material copper, not for copper coloured.
