Enter the weight of the first color (g/lbs/etc) and the ink mixing ratio between the first color and second color into the Ink Mixing Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Ink Mixing. 

Ink Mixing Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Ink Mixing.

WSC = WFC * IMR

Variables:

  • WSC is the Ink Mixing (weight of the second color (g/lbs/etc))
  • WFC is the weight of the first color (g/lbs/etc) 
  • IMR is the ink mixing ratio between the first color and second color 

How to Calculate Ink Mixing?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Ink Mixing.


  1. First, determine the weight of the first color (g/lbs/etc). 
  2. Next, determine the ink mixing ratio between the first color and second color. 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = WSC = WFC * IMR.
  4. Finally, calculate the Ink Mixing.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

weight of the first color (g/lbs/etc) = 40

ink mixing ratio between the first color and second color = 1.5

WSC = WFC * IMR = ?
