FBC Formula Book Central
Formula Book Central is a program designed to replace those difficult to manage,
search and update hard copy formula books supplied to paint stores.


The software allows the Formula Book to be stored on either a Personal Computer system or on a Personal Data assistant using the Palm© OS, and for standard formulas to be recalled and displayed scaled to the required can size, eliminating misread errors and simplifying the paint tinting process.








Formula Book Central Plus

Formula Book Central Plus takes the features of Formula Book Central and adds the ability to measure samples and to search the database for the closest existing fan-deck colours.  The tint formula can then be displayed and scaled to any required can size.
