    Okay, I have looked and can not find anything about mixing powder Pd/Pt. and is it that much of a savings than having B&S mixing it for you.

    thanks

    I charge the same for liquid and powder. But here's the easiest rundown for mixing powder:

    Palladium:
    25ml-
    2.5g Palladium Chloride
    1.8g Sodium Chloride (table salt)

    100ml-
    10g Palladium Chloride
    7.2g Sodium Chloride

    Heat water to near boiling, then add palladium and salt. Stir to mix well. Should completely disolve within 5 minutes.

    Platinum:
    25ml-
    5g Potassium Chloroplatinite

    100ml-
    20g Potassium Chloroplatinite

    Heat water to 90F, add Platinum crystals and stir. Keep the temperature down to help prevent the formation of red needle-like crystals in the bottom of your storage container.

    Hi Dana,
    I noticed the Pt price has been increased significantly. Do you offer promo discount for group purchase sometime soon? Thanks. TT
