Good habits are essential in the mix room to reduce waste, save money, and ultimately provide the best possible color match. For a more detailed and thorough reference guide, click here. For general paint mixing apply the following:

  • When tinting do not substitute toners.
  • Use of a plastic cup on an ungrounded scale can lead to static charge build up and contribute to scale drift.
  • Store mixing containers upside down to prevent contamination from dust and dirt.
  • If you must leave the mixing area, place a lid over your mix container.
  • When reducing products use the PAINTMANAGER® software system.
  • Do not use a mixing stick with a container with tapered sides.
