    your sandwich?

    Im not an expert on this, but from what i understand the two factors you need to considder ate temperature and ph. if your sandwich is basic, and to a greater degree at high temperatures, it will absorb aluminum and may pose a minor long term health risk. the only sandwich ingredients i can find with ph>7 are eggs, shrimp, and cheese, but only camemburt (yes, there are cheese ph charts). Egg salad sandwiches are usually cold, as are those containing shrimp- and cheese is usually not on the outside of a sandwich, so dont worry about it. unless you eat allot of hot egg sandwiches and the egg ozzes out and then you lick that back off of the foil or you have hot pastrami with camemburt on the outside ten times a day i think you will be ok. if you really want to stop the aluminum from your foil from getting on things maybe you can anodize it. maybe you will get rich off of non contaminating anodized foil for hot camemburt, but i doubt it.

    There's lead in them, yes. Wash your hands after handling and follow the other directions on the label.

    Sure - http://www.caswellplating.com/suppli...ess.htm#anodes.

    You'll probably want two, one for each side of your tank.

    is it possible to purchase a gp plate alone, outside of a kit?

    It doesn't work as well.

    It doesn't conduct electricity as well, doesn't provide consistent current and therefore results in a sub standard job.

    what is the downside to using aluminum foil as a cathode?

    Exactly the same product. We use different terms in the manual depending on the application, so we gave them different names.

    E.g. GP Plates for deplating. Anodizing plates for anodizing, but they're the same product.

    plates

    Can you tell me the difference in your G P Plates and your
    Annodizing Plates? They are listed same size, same price
    and I was just curious.

    You shouldn't use aluminum foil as a cathode. Use a GP Plate.

    You have a problem report on file with us about this, and your question has been answered there.

    2 annodizing questions

    Im new to annodizing so bear with me. First - Would there be any negative effect if i used aluminum foil as a cathode? Second- I have polished aluminum to a glass like finish, but after I anno it, it appears very dull or chalky. What am I doing wrong, or what else can I do to keep the luster?
Working...
