    CANADABALSAM

    Wie heeft er ervaring met het werken met Canadabalsam.

    Wil een Prisma losweken en opnieuw hiermede kitten.
    Nu zijn er diverse producten waarmede je deze delen
    kan losweken. Heeft ook hier iemand ervaring mee?

    Mocht iemand weten waar ik ZUIVERE balsam kan
    bekomen dan houd ik me ook aanbevolen.

    Benieuwd naar reacties.
    THeo

    th,
    The translation from Dutch to English via Google translator is poor.

    I understand that balsam is used to encase objects in/on slides for microscopy.
    Are you trying to use balsam as a sealant, or are you trying to find a solvent to remove balsam?

    Dear Mr. Marc,
    My English is very bad but I try.
    Ad first I am looking for remove the balsam/ to separate the parts.
    Second as a sealant/ a adhesive to buitlt the parts together.
    Is is already used to built together some lens parts for a objective.
    Many years ago Zeiss have it already used but that was terrible.
    many claims.

    Theo,
    Your English is just fine. It has to be...because I don't know any Dutch.

    I think you are looking for products containing the chemical "Xylene."

    'Xylene' is used as a paint thinner, and as a solvent. Hardware or paint stores
    should be a source, as well as some fingernail polish removers. Read the label ingredients.

    The chemicals 'Acetone' or 'Toluene' may also work, but from what I read,
    'Xylene' is the best chemical to cut-through, or remove 'Balsam' based sealers.

    My main solvent for removing glue from the few camera repairs I do is 'Lighter Fluid',
    or Coleman camp stove, 'White Gas'. The main ingredient in cigarette Lighter Fluid
    and Coleman camping fuel is 'Naptha,' (sometimes spelled Naphtha).
    I do not read anywhere that 'Naptha' will cut or remove 'Balsam'.

    Now that we have your needs translated, maybe others will be of more help.

    Of op http://grossformatfotografie.de de vraag stellen
    Daar zitten enkele leden die erg veel van optiek afweten en ik meen te weten dat jou duits behoorlijk is.
    Printen is net als leren fietsen. Theorie helpt niet, je moet het doen.

    Gary,

    Hartelijk dank. Ik ga er snuffelen.

    Moet geloof ik wel eerst een Sinar/Cambo of iets dergelijks aanschaffen!

    Groet,
    Theo

    If I am not wrong , xylene causes kidney and liver cancer. So use it at open air with real necessary mask.
