Roger - the flies around that horse do seem to give it the authenticity of deadness,
but if parathion had killed the horse, the flies would be dead too. Somewhere around
here I have some sandstone footprints of mesohippus, but perhaps that's just too
dead of a horse.
What is the purpose of Triethanolamine in the 510 formula? Is it the alkalie??
The TEA acts as the solvent, into which the constituent chemicals are dissolved, and when mixed with water, acts as the accelerator.
When properly heated and mixed, what color should the 510-pyro concentrate be?
Mine boiled pretty quick and turned brown. Is it any good or should it be a lighter color?
For the sake of the archives, I will follow up to say it worked well. I went on to make 2 more batches... and will probably make a third later this weekend.
I'm glad it's working well for you, but I'm a little confused -- are you making up batches of of working solution, or concentrate? I usually make up a liter of concentrate at a time, but even 100ml of it will last quite a while. So, I assume your batches were of working solution?
