PATINAS & CHEMICALS

VE color backgroundSML.png

VICTORY ETCH

Victory Etch® is the user friendly, low pH metal etch to get bright colors on your titanium.  Removes titanium & niobium anodizing mistakes.  Can be used to lightly etch mokume gane containing copper and brass.  Will remove light fire scale from sterling. Contains NO dangerous Hydrofluoric or Nitric Acids!  Designed to be used warm, our Easy Heat Bath Kit makes the task simple and quick, giving you warm etch in about 5 minutes. If you're used to heating your etch to a higher temp, Victory Etch is concentrated so you can dilute up to twice the recommended amount of distilled water--that's twice the amount of etch for an already low cost! 

 

 Shipped dry in a powder form in several sizes so you get just the amount you need.  Just add distilled or RO water to hydrate.  See instructions for full safety, mixing and usage requirements. 

Shipped only within the lower 48 states via UPS ground.  

FOREIGN DELIVERY IS AVAILABLE USING YOUR HAZMAT FREIGHT FORWARDER ONLY.  WE CANNOT SHIP DIRECT!

Testimonial:

From Noël Yovovich on the Victory Etch and Easy Heat Bath Kit: "So I pulled out an old nasty-looking piece of titanium someone gave me years ago. The difference there was dramatic. The etch is fabulous for reviving titanium that has sat around or gotten discolored in any way.  The kit is easy to use and the instructions are clear."

Fast Read Thermometer

How do you solve the problem of the thermometer when it comes to etch?  You can't use glass because the etch will weaken it causing a potentially dangerous situation if it were to break.  You don't want a regular metal thermometer that has to remain in the etch for a long time to read because you can contaminate your etch bath with the residue from the metal probe.  Enter the Fast Read Thermometer!  Get an accurate digital temperature read in just 2-3 seconds!  Just a quick rinse & dry of the probe after use will keep it in working order and not contaminate your bath.  

Fast Read Thermometer           $14.98

TSP-PF Electrolyte

No phosphates!  Environmentally safe electrolyte. Works just like the tri-sodium phosphate we have recommended for years without the phosphate pollution.  1/2 cup per gallon distilled water. The 16 oz. box makes four gallons of electrolyte.  Low sudsing, clear, simply the right stuff.

No Name Patina Prep

This is a special "soft abrasive" powder with a tiny natural acid component that cleans and deoxidizes metals. It is the perfect pre-patina cleaner. Get smooth, even coloring every time. It is especially effective for preparing copper for enameling and can replace acid solutions. What makes this special is a rounded abrasive. It will actually bring metal up to a soft shine. It takes only gentle pressure to strip nonferrous metals of all contaminants.

5 ounce shaker bottle     $4.79 

Ready Patina

Specially formulated oxidizer for mokume metals.  Copper turns a rich brown, shakudo patinas a classic purple-black and shibuichi will turn grey to olive green.  A very small amount goes a long way.  Best of all it does not color silver, gold or nickel alloys.  Instructions included.  Always test patinas on like scrap.

Shipped domestically via UPS ground only.
