A simple interface-capturing approach is developed in order to deduce the relativistic fluid equations for a two-component mixture, using a stiffened gas equation of state. The two species are assumed to be at thermal equilibrium and the total pressure of the mixture is expressed in terms of the pressures of the two components by Dalton's law. Moreover, weak discontinuity waves compatible with such a fluid are examined.
