Plastisol Matching Formulas

Mixing these inks following the formula guide will produce opaque plastisol ink for t-shirt printers. We have put this guide together using formulae from pantone matchings done over the past 20 years. All the formulae are expressed in percentages enabling any quantity of ink to be made from the original formula. We recommend printers use an accurate set of scales to weigh out exactly the amounts detailed in each formula N.B. When choosing a specific colour to match you should always use the paper printed Pantone Colour Guide and not a colour displayed on a computer screen or phone as these will NOT be an accurate simulation of the Pantone Colour. Also the formulae in this system are for Pantone Colours with the suffix c (coated) only. The formulas in the guide are all displayed as percentages. This makes it easy to calculate the weight of ink required. For example: if you want to make 1.5 kilos of Pantone 185C Red. The method to calculate it is shown below. Screen Colour Systems will be happy to advise on all your colour matching needs. We have on site mixing facilities for a batch size of up to 250 kilos.

Method Of Calculation

Colour Required PMS 185

Amount 1.5kg or 1500g

1. Check Formula Adds Up To 100

2. Amount In Grams Required Divided By 100

1500 ÷ 100 = 15

3. Now Multiply The Formula By 15
