    Surfactants of choice and concentration

    Started by Aaron Rodgers in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Aaron Rodgers yesterday. 10 Replies

    So I've poured over SDS sheets, these forums and elsewhere. I know people have used SLS, SLES, and Triton x-100.Some are in flake form like SLS, SLES is most commonly found in 28% concentration and is like a goo when higher, while Triton is in 100% concentration and is very thick and clearly has to be diluted to be able to be added to the lava fluid and actually disperse. My question is, who out there is using these things, and in what concentrations? How much are you adding to a rebuild of a…Continue

    Converting Mathmos Astro for USA

    Started by Brad in Problems & Questions. Last reply by James on Saturday. 30 Replies

    Hello,I recently ordered a Mathmos Astro blue/blue lamp and would like to know what I should do to use it here in the USA. It seems that my options are:1. use a UK-->US upconverter2. re-wire the lampIt cost me $120 to order this lamp, so I'm not really wanting to modify it this quickly. However, if I go with the adapter, what do I do when the bulb burns out? Do they sell replacement bulbs here in the USA that will work with the Astro? At that point, it seems that it would be better to…Continue

    I know what you're gonna say. I should have known better. I did know better. Any Lava brand lamp made post-2003 is dicey at best. Well, I'm happy to report that I've actually had pretty good luck with purchasing new 17" lamps. I picked up a…
