Maybe there is more than one answer to this important question. And maybe the answer is not the same for all Amel Masts. I have the Renault Panda White #348 that John has posted, but I also have the following:
The paint Amel used on SMs is by AwlGrip. The type is 00B006G (also known as White Amel No 3).
The hardener is 000G3010 known as AWLCAT2
The thinner is 000T0001
The RAL color code is 1013
the original paint code is Renault Panda Blanc (or White in US) #348 In the US NAPA has the formula to fabricate the paint on order. Cost is about $15-20 USD per can.

Paul, I painted my main mast with alwgrip ten yrs. and it was a perfect match. I just sanded it with 320 grit and then roll and tipped it , I did not prime it other than a few spots where I had corrosion. Having the boat repainted this winter due to a 47' cat who drug anchor and hit us at 4:30 am. in Guadeloupe . I will try to determine the paint color and get back ,need to anyway as I plan to paint the mizzen mast and the booms since I will be demasting the boat to go into a shed for painting .
