That HCB is pretty much unobtanium. Not many chances to get it. While you won't be able to use it for everything, you can see how it works and experiment with other chlorine donors to try and get something else or a combination to equal the HCB. Great if you like to experiment and is the same thing that was being sold on another website for $25 and of course is going to help BB.

Don't forget guys, this isn't about buying chemicals or getting a great deal. It's about helping someone that had a bad accident and could use some help. So if you are on the fence get bidding! We are in the final stretch and this is the last chance to get silly to help someone out!

FYI, that TPA is also used in a 'non-toxic' military smoke that makes lots of white smoke. I will be happy to share the formula.

If anyone is interested I can bump the 2# up to 3# if anyone wants more or bid it up some? If anyone objects just say so or will keep it the same if no more bids. Just trying to get some more action going on and more money for BB. Not trying to complicate things or upset anyone.

I also found in my notes that phenolic and propylene glycol is referred to as plastisol. 6-8% phenolic is used with 2% propylene glycol and acts like a plasticizer to bind the composition.

I had a few pages of info on phenolic and it's uses as well as different types and their traits but haven't found it yet. There was a lot of good info so I will keep looking.

So there are two separate lots of TPA?  1# and 3#?

 

edit - If so, I'll bid $15 on the 1# lot.

I believe all is correct now, but it might not be a bad idea to wait for a little bit to give others the opportunity to correct any other mistakes which I may have made. My apologies. I see how you could "get lost" trying to sort through all of this. Imagine if mumbles hadn't split the auction into separate threads.

Hey guys this weekend is my anniversary so tomorrow I will be back home. Some of it is already bagged up, some needs to be weighed out. I will get it all boxed up and if I have a zip will get a shipping quote to work with. I don't mind if it isn't quite right and can pay a little extra for shipping. Just don't have a ton of money for it since I got sick and legally disabled a few years ago.

I will let everyone know what's going on soon!


Thanks everyone!

Ryan

Was at a guild family picnic/shoot all day yesterday.   Looks good to me as far as the TPA amounts/winners and waiting on final total including shipping.
