    We introduced computer based colour matching system to the Sri Lankan consumer in 1999 - we were able to take colour matching to a new height with the Spectro photo meter which upgrades the entire process of colour matching from conventional methods such as colour cabinets etc. This process has enhanced the accuracy of colours , enabling exact colours to be matched , minimizing errors and the possibility of a mismatch. At Multilac, we possess the know-how to match exact colours required by the customers, batch after batch thanks to our top end technology based colour matching system.
