    Does this apply to Black and Clear Chromates, as well?? My Black is PAVCO.

    Right-O. Thank you. Once I get done plating my things (over the next month or so) I'll put it in a glass container.

    Because it is a chromate, it will eventually deteriorate plastic. It will take some considerable time, many years in our experience. We are just playing safe, suggesting you transfer to glass for long term storage.

    The manual says to mix the yellow chromate in a plastic (or ceramic lined) container, but to store it in a glass container.
    Is it really necessary to store it in a glass container? I don't have anything I could use. Also, I'd like to just keep it in a plastic bucket with a lid so I don't have to transfer the solution everytime I need to use it.
Working...
