MIXOL is one of Europe's leading brands of multi-purpose tinting concentrates and over the last 45 years has proven itself as a reliable partner to individual craftsmen and the colour tone industry. Binder-free multi-purpose tinting paste enables the user to mix 33 MIXOL and 3 metallic effect concentrates on-site to achieve the desired color.
The increased demand for high quality and fast drying of varnishes, paints and other coatings has called for tinting systems, such as MIXOL® to expand their assortment of oxide shades. With our MIXOL®-Oxide tints our product range offers a number of inorganic pigments of outstanding quality and fastness that meet even the highest demands! The MIXOL® product range has always included oxide tints, although the variety of shades was limited. Now 15 magnificent MIXOL®-Oxide-Types are available! All MIXOL®-Oxide tints are inorganic mineral pigments, being the oxide of various metals. These hight quality products are light fast, weather proof and won’t fade. MIXOL®-Oxide tints are most important for outdoor application and when working with high quality, complex materials. For best results, use MIXOL®-Oxide-Tints exclusively, if you work with one of the following materials: n Silicate paints or silicate coatings n Mineral building materials n Silicone resin paints and coatings n Varnishes low in or free from aromatic compounds n Insulating varnishes, sealers as well as exterior paints containing solvents.

MIXOL® is a binder-free multi-purpose tinting paste – not a ready-made paint!
Shake thoroughly before and close firmly after use so MIXOL® will not dry out or form lumps or skin. MIXOL® is highly resistant to frost and heat. After freezing it needs only to be thawed at room temperature. Then shake thoroughly and it is ready for use again. Depending on the paint concerned, MIXOL® 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® (please see the percentage additions in the MIXOL® colour card). The maximum additions are: 10 % to latex and/or emulsion paints, 5–8 % to paints, lacquers, varnishes, high-solids, 6 % to acrylic paints, 3–5 % to transparent and/or clear lacquers, transparent paints, glazes, wood stains, waxes etc., 3 % for silicate and silicone paints and/or coatings.
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. Attention: Please read the MIXOL® leaflets as well as the instructions and technical information in this colour chart and on the labels and be aware of the two different terms: LW types and/or LW oxide types: Fast to light and weatherproof, for indoor and outdoor application. L types: For indoor application only.
