Not everyone is 'online'.

Right, lets go. Refractometer does give a guide as to the strength. It is not an absolute measurement, but it is a good guide. If using the same type of refractometer,...

The safety data sheet shows it to be weaker than iron-x, by a distance. You can see it both from the composition and the density. If you care to check a refractometer, several other products are...

You need way more in the bottle. You are probably getting 100 to 1 on the paint when it should be nearer 20 to 1. It will work well but you have to use miles more than with other products.

There is actually a right answer. Tar should come off first. Tar is blobs, extended areas which can cover up fallout. The fallout will be little point sources which will never cover up an entire tar...
