Default Dubilier Capacitor Colour?

I have a quantity of Dubilier paper in oil capacitors, eg 8uF 800v. They check out electrically fine but due to age and bad storage they look rather battered.
Can anyone tell me the correct RAL paint colour for these? It looks a sort of light green, slightly blue shade and similar to front panels on some military or industrial equipment. Thanks.

Thanks. That looks right on my screen anyway. Described as a shade of blue seems a little off the mark though.
