"Thanks for the info, love the avatar, I have a goofy GSD as well. Ok so eyeballing the surf I get. But when you're adding wax back to a globe, how much surf do you have in the bottle to keep from having sticking issues? Or are you just coating…"

"Mine is still liquid, no flakes, but it's only 2 years old. I dilute 70% H2O and 30% surf by volume in a large glass measuring cup. I do not know how much to add to the globes, I just add a "swig", run the lamp, and adjust from…"

"So diluting that to 70%, how much are you adding in say a 32oz globe? I imagine even at that mixture is probably still very gooey! Does it disperse in the lamp alright?"

Surfactants of choice and concentration

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 is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrsstellakhalil5888@gmail.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless
Stella.
