The TPX ink s are used on textile and paints. There's some converter online but apparently you won't always find a good match there; some Pantones don't have an exact equivalent in TPX.

So the best way to find the equivalent of you TPX in Pantone will be to use a Solid Coated Pantone color book and compare it with a TPX swatch book, ideally a printed one.

You can ask your printer for this or check the "Pantone Fashion + Home Paper" to find it manually online in the cross libraries. This might not be the most precise way but that's the book you're looking for.

Here's a converter from Pantone for cross libraries:

And here is the result it shows for your Solid Cool Gray 07 Coated:

First you select the color you have already from that library. In your case "Pantone solid coated."

Then the number of the Pantone.

Then the library you want it to be converted to. In your case, "Fashion Home."
