A touch of the right colour makes all the difference.

Colour must match and must last. Automotive thread production is a complex process, where the final product must compliment other materials. While the thread might pass colour matching under one type of light, it might not under another. To reduce the effects of metamerism, Coats adopts each OEMs colour testing standards. No matter the light source, the difference between your blue and Coats blue will be nothing.
