In this step you can finally work your magic.

Play with endless possibilities and observe all hazards and calculations like density, VOC, solids etc. as you add different materials into your formulation - in real time, on one screen.

The Formulation Mixer uses raw material data from Allchemist public materials database and from your private lab.

When creating/adding materials or formulations, please try to provide at least parameters in the general parameters section (4. step). This will enable you and your team to faster find products and to keep your virtual lab organized. The consistency of data is very important.

Please note:

In order to work properly, the formulation mixer requires the following information on raw materials:

  • Proper classification of materials used in a formulation. Classification of materials affects parameters like pigment to volume concentration and pigment to binder ratio.

  • Chemical composition of materials used in a formulation. Hazard classification of the final formulation is calculated on the basis of chemical composition of materials and the hazard classification of substances contained.

  • Entered general parameters for materials used in a formulation. These parameters, especially the physical state, density of solvents, density, weight organic solvents and the solid content are essential for the calculation of physical parameters in the formulation mixer. If case some of these parameters is missing, the calculation will be incorrect.  Please enter the VOC in g/l, solids content in % and density in g/cm3 for the calculation to work properly.

This steps should be taken in account when adding raw materials data in public or private Allchemist lab.
