    How to obtain Pyrocat

    So, I'd like to try it, but B&H and others who carry it can't ship it. Do I have to drive to a major city or can my local photo store get it - and if THEY can get it, why can't I? I know, regulations, etc... grrr.
    In life you only get one great dog, one great car, and one great woman. Pet the dog. Drive the car. Make love to the woman. Don't mix them up.

    I got my Pyrocat at Photographer's Formulary. I think it's on sale this month.

    You can purchase it from Photographers Formulary, or Bostick and Sullivan. I have had no problem getting it shipped.

    You can also try here:http://www.artcraftchemicals.com/scr...FILE=/kits.htm

    I have heard that Artcraft is no longer doing pre-pakaged kits, but cannot verify this. You can also order the bulk chems from them as well as the Formulary and mix your own; easy to do and cheaper.

    When I first tried Pyrocat, I ordered the 50L size from the formulary. Once I tried it and liked it, I ordered the bulk chemicals to mix my own. This was so I could mix it in Glycol. Now that the Formulary sells it premixed in Glycol, I'll have to rethink mixing my own once the dry chemicals run out.

    While this stuff is great to use, some of the chemicals can be really nasty if not properly handled. Just my 2 Cents.

    On that subject, I wonder why catechol is considered more hazardous than hydroquinone. The difference between them is in the location of one OH. Both have the same empirical formula. Both can work in the Pyrocat formulas, but give different stain colors.
