Lamp Black: The Colour of Soot

Lamp Black is made from the soot collected from Jackson Art — a pure carbon. It can also be made from the soot from tar or resin. This soft shade of black often has a brown tint when used alone, while it takes on a blue tint when mixed with white to create grey and is particularly useful for colouring dark skies and seas. This Art supplies colour of black is usually slow to dry and can be mixed with other compounds to speed up the process. It is also very stable colour.

Utrecht Art Supplies - condensed sans

Long time Typophile reader, first time posting.
Anyhow, I can't identify the condensed sans-serif typeface used by Utrecht in nearly all of their promotional materials— I thought it might have been Folio Condensed or Anzeigen Grotesk at one point, but Folio Condensed (at least the light version) seems to have a lower x-height, and Anzeigen comes only in bold and the capital "R" is markedly different.
Please advise.
