English term or phrase: oversize/putty
For a stationery catalog:

Standard Action Adjustable Hole Punches. Oversize 9/32" holes, fully adjustable centers. Black ACC-7402 Putty

I'm puzzled with oversize 9/32" holes, and "Putty" at the end. I know it must be some kind of material or presentation

GRACIAS

Finalmente, llegamos a una parte del catálogo en el cual se ofrece un gabinete (mueble), con las siguientes opciones:
1 OID-8107 - Light Gray
1 OID-8107 - Black
1 OID-8107 - Putty

De este modo, no queda duda de que es un color. Muchísimas gracias a todos por aportar con tanto interés!!

color crema/blanco = putty


Explanation:
Putty I strongly suspect is the colour (off-white, cream) because it's juxtaposed with black and pictures in the following website.

Was unable to find anything directly related to your context for oversize in Spanish, but from waht I DID see it may mean large/larger in some way.

Sorry I can'¡t help you more.

sobredimensionado, de gran tamaño / masilla


Explanation:
Strictly, "oversize" is "sobredimensionar", but in this context I think it means just "large".
Does "masilla" fit this context?? Is it possible that it refers to modelling paste or something similar??. It could be black.

Best regards,

Patricia

sobremedida /recubrimiento


Explanation:
El término para "oversize" más utilizado en la industria es "sobremedida".
Putty es normalmente masilla o pasta, como la utilizada para juntas de ventana y en aplicaciones eléctricas. También se refiere al emplastecimiento de pintura. Yo creo que en tu contexto no se trata del color, sino del tipo de recubrimiento, que estaría catalogado como ACC-7402, eventualmente de color negro. Intentaré buscar la referencia ACC-0472 en especificaciones de "coatings", para comprobar este punto.
Espero sea de ayuda.

Explanation:
I found something:
ACC might stand for Aucorethic Coating Chemicals. See the web page below.
I think it is a coating.
Good luck

Explanation:
Sorry to intrude again.

ACC = Autophoretic Coating Chemicals
I made some spelling mistake in previous posting. Anyway I do not think you should mention the long name.
I would just say: Recubrimiento ACC-7402

Sorry to insist


Explanation:
Putty may refer to colour, of course, but not in this case, if I am not wrong.
How can it be black and almost white at the same time?
Please see Eurodicautum. Search for Putty and see last entry.
Putty refers in our case to the finish coating of the puncher. And it is eventually black, not white.
Well, sorry for insisting, but I think it is interesting to discuss the matter.
