    Re: Acid for anodizing

    Battery acid is mostly, but not 100% sulfuric acid. Sulfuric acid is 100% sulfuric acid.

    We recommend battery acid for our kits and processes. Some people may find sulfuric acid works best in other products. It\'s really up to you to experiment.

    Hello,
    Hope you don\'t mind if I add on to this thread, but what you said caught my eye about sulfuric acid not working out of the box. Can you give a little more detail on that. Reason being we currently use battery acid but my partner seems to think we should switch to sulfuric acid. I did some research and I\'m not sure if I want to use that stuff. If can tell me what the pro\'s and con\'s are that would be great.

    Thanks in advance

    Can you tell me the exact concentration by volume/weight or Molarity. I need this since I have limited supplier from whom i can buy.

    thanks

    Acid for anodizing

    Is automotive battery acid the same mixture (1/3 acid, 2/3 water) from all sources? The plating manual recommends getting it from NAPA auto stores for use in anodizing, but I have some from a different source. Does it matter as long as its automotive battery acid?
