Description of the article:
Tifoo Galvanic thickener (10 g) – the product features at a glance:
- Very efficient, adding 0.5 - 1.0 % are enough
- Stable and resistant in acidic electrolytes
- Gels plating solutions and therefore saves on, e.g. precious gold when pen plating
- Not toxic and environmentally sound
- More stable and efficient as cellulos thickeners
The highly efficient gelling agent is normally used to thicken plating solutions but can also be used for other purposes because it thickens almost any watery solution until it is gelly. You only have to add 0.5 to 1.0 weight percent of the gelling agent. In order to thicken 100 ml of water, you will need e. g. 05. to 1.0 gramms. The gelling agent is added in small portions and stirred and mixed well immediately in order to avoid lumps. The maximum effect will be achieved at about 30 minutes to 2 hours.
Application fields: saves e.g. on gold when pen plating, as the gelly gold electrolyte doesn't drip as easily. Can also be used for different cleaning agents in order to use them on vertical surfaces. The gelly solution becomes flexible or liquid by mechanical force, which allows the gel to be applied by brush. After the exertion of force, the gel will become solid again and won't drip.
Scope of delivery:
