Re: BAP10 / Mix it yourself?


Joe,

Thanks for the clarification on the concentration of BAP-10.  I have never
used it myself.  I assumed that BAP-10 was 10 grams per liter not 10%,
sorry.  No, it would not be economical to make it yourself.  You would have
to buy the chemical in bulk and invest a lot of money.  The markup on small
quantities from chemical companies is enormous.
