    Searching for Ammonium Dichromate

    Hey,

    After a long time I am getting back into Gum Printing but this also means my stock of ammonium dichromate is getting smaller. I want to replenish my stock but I'm searching for a place that actually sells it. I'm living in Belgium and it seems that getting Ammonium Dichromate is more difficult to get than an illegal weapon here. Anybody an idea on a source in Belgium or in the EU zone (that ships abroad)? Pharmacists are a no go here and lab suppliers only supply to companies here in Belgium.

    Thanx in advance
    Filip (Ghent)

    Tell me, here in the US there's a movement to allow everybody to conceal and carry firearms but making a photograph is being criminalized...and they want us to vote for the morons who are spawning this lunacy..EC

    I don't know if you can get it from the Netherlands: http://www.labstuff.nl/ or http://www.hekserij.nl/index.htm

    I just took the links from an older thread that I remembered, so I have no experience with them.

    People doing pyrotechnics use the ammonium dichromate, as far as I know it, so if you can find someone doing fireworks...

    Unfortunately labstuff seems to be a dead site, there has been a notice on that site for months now that they don't take any new orders because they are too busy. And the other one doesn't carry Ammonium Dichromate. Concerning people who do pyrotechnics, I don't know any. As for now I have found a company in the Netherlands who should deliver to private persons and to Belgium but their shippingfees are quite high but I took the gamble to order 500gr. Still out however for a more domestic source.

    Yeah, sorry about that! I didn't see the notice. But good that you found one source for the time being. Unless you do huge murals, I guess 500 gr will get you a good bit of printing done.

    Yeah, I know Permadocument but they are pretty pricy, if I order 500gr. it's more expensive than ordering it from the Netherlands, go figure. Also I ordered my first batch from them and I was horrified by the packaging of the Ammonium Dichromate, it was just packed in a thin plastic freezer bag. It's still a dangerous chemical and should be treated like that.

    Dichromates should not be shipped in ziploc or similar packaging, nor should it be sent in the normal post - Many chemicals (both wet and dry) are illegal to ship that way. Consider reporting the company to the relevant authorities.
