    Advice on Silver Nitrate

    I saw some really cheap silver nitrate on ebay.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI...:B:WNA:US:1123

    Is this useful for alt processes like salt prints?

    Or do I have to buy the more expensive ACS grade?

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Silver-Nitra...efaultDomain_0

    I don't need a whole pound, but what's the difference?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey, the first one is about Sodium Nitrate, not Silver Nitrate! Silver nitrate can't be that cheap!

    Na is not Ag.

    Apparently APUG doesn't support the "does not equal".

    As you can tell, I never took a chemistry class I'm glad APUGers are smarter than me

    talk to Mike at Artcraft.... www.artcraft.com the best price on quality silver nitrate bar none. He has actually lowered hi prices recently with the drop in silver costs... so all this hype about film companies saying silver has gone up causing a price hike is BS.... It's actually come down a fair bit.

    I'd question the purity of product when it's shown as a pile of crystals, exposed to the air
    What's in that .4% of impurities makes all the difference - a batch/lot number and or assay should reveal what contaminants are present at the time of packaging.

    Jason,

    Artcraft is a lot less money. Salt lake is selling 500 grams for $780 High purity while artcraft sells a pound (415gr) for $392. that's a huge difference.

    For the record, I suppose you guys mean Artcraft Chemicals, right? (http://www.artcraftchemicals.com)

    The other company is a digi-printing business...
