PATINAS & CHEMICALS

Multi-Etch®

An anodizing breakthrough! At last, a safer way to prepare titanium for high voltage anodizing. Cleans niobium & titanium and erases anodizing mistakes. It etches copper, brass, pewter, steel and will clean light fire scale from sterling. Multi-Etch is shipped dry in its own one gallon storage container.  Just add distilled water. Works best in a heated acid resistant container (plastic in a double boiler) and requires positive ventilation and safety equipment. Can also be used at room temperature.  See instructions for mixing requirements.  Do not use or store in glass!  Contains no hydrofluoric or nitric acids! Each unit makes up to 1 gallon of etch.  Shipped domestically via UPS Ground ONLY.  Please note this product is not eligible for resale!

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.
