    Re: Anodizing Dye pH

    I had to search around to find how to adjust the ph and I'd thought I'd save someone else the trouble and post a link to it. Enjoy.

        Re: Anodizing Dye pH

        I got a electronic PH tester. Do I put it into the black dye directly to measure the PH when the solution is cold or hot? I'm afraid the black dye is going to discolor the PH tester because it yellow plastic.

          The plastic ph testers work well. Calibrate first. Cold Dye. Adding dye will usually raise the ph. Sometimes if ph is too high the dye won't absorb properly. We had problems with reds because of high ph in the past.

            Hey guys,

            I was wondering if just "ph up" (Sodium Carbonate, Soda Ash) and "ph down" (Sodium Bisulfate) from a store would work for altering ph levels in the dyes? Or are acids necessary?

            Thanks!

              Hi Brwn253,
              To raise the PH, you will need to use Sodium Hydroxide, to lower the PH, use Acetic Acid.
