Colour Matching & Tinting

Albany stores specialise in colour matching and tinting. In many of our stores there are up to 5 different paint tinting systems with a combined capacity to produce in excess of 20,000 different colours and shades. We also make the best use of technology such as colour spectrometers to match samples of colour. So if you have a favourite colour from nature, fabrics, textiles or even plastics why not bring in a sample and we will match that colour for you.
