Default Mixing diff fluids of different weight?

Is it possible to mix half 3000 weight with half 7000 weight to get a 5000 weight? Or do the thicker weights increase exponentially?

50/50 won't quite get you there, but it will be close enough. General Electric used to have a silicone mixing calculator up, but it was removed a while back.

as with shock oil, its a complicated formula.

you would need to mix less 7k with more 3k to achieve a true 5k
