Chemicals have met their match

With MixPad you can easily recalculate your paint or coatings formula to a target Weight or Volume, Pigment or Binder level, Cost, VOC, or Density using one or more of the formulas ingredients. If it is possible to obtain that target level, MixPad will recalculate to it. If not, it will tell you so.


Find your target values

With the MixPad recalculation features you can optimize your formulas to reduce costs, increase quality, or reach any other property goal. Mixpad will analyze your target value and calculate to that goal if it is obtainable.

Raw Materials

Keep all your materials in one place

You can have an unlimited amount of materials. Materials can also be made directly from formulas. Materials can be displayed on printouts by weight, volume, or by container. Materials can be saved as separate files and embedded within the formula files in-case they are accidentally deleted.

Formula Properties

Information about your formulas.

You can store notes, specifications, and modification dates. Mixpad also includes a standards protection feature to prevent the accidental changing of fixed formulas.

Edit specifications
Search for raw materials

Material Search

Find that material that meets your need

Search for materials by their description, cost, volatile, or containers. MixPad can locate the material you want and insert it into your formula. Several operations are available to find raw materials that meet or exceed your specification.

Formula Search

Locate that missing formula

With Mizpad’s formula search, you can find all of your formulas that contain a specific raw material. Also included is the ability to search for specific notes within formulas.
