MIXOL® tints are a binder-free multi-purpose tinting paste – not a ready-made paint! – Shake thoroughly before and close firmly after use so MIXOL® tint will not dry out or form lumps or skin.

Depending on the paint concerned, MIXOL® tints may be added up to a maximum of 10 % by weight. But considering that it is highly concentrated, you can obtain best results by adding a minimum of MIXOL® tint. The maximum additions are:
Use only MIXOL® oxide tints in varnishes low in or free from aromatic compounds or in paints containing silicate or silicone resin! (Red cap = oxide type!) MIXOL® tints which are no “LW oxide types” are unsuitable or only suitable to a limited extent for colouring latex emulsions containing solvents, or for colouring polyester resin finishes, single or two component synthetic resin paints. In case of tinting lacquers sometimes MIXOL® cannot be mixed easily by hand, therefore use a stirring apparatus, if possible, to get optimal results and to avoid a rub-out effect. It is also important to test results after stirring! Always test for compatibility by means of a “rub-test”. Brush on some of the tinted paint and immediately rub hard with your finger. If it turns a darker shade, the material is either incompatible with MIXOL® or the concentrate has not been properly stirred in. Stir well again and repeat test. Add MIXOL® first and only then add the thinner if required!
MIXOL® tints No. 6, 7, 10 and 18 are for indoor application only! When a yellow or red are required for external applications, use True Yellow No. 26, True Red No. 27 and Oxide Brilliant Yellow No. 30 instead of the internal quality No. 7 Canary Yellow and No. 10 Red. For internal application (e. g. on new wood and other surfaces) we also offer a multi-purpose concentrate White No. 25, which should be added to colourless coatings and/or transparent paints, glazes etc. to create a pickling effect.
