View Full Version : Pyrocat HD in Canada

20-Aug-2015, 13:58
Hi Folks,

I'm a little bit lost after relocating to Canada.
Where does one mail order raw chemicals for Pyrocat in Canada?
I used to order from a shop in Montreal when I lived up here years ago, but they are closed.
Catechin is hazardous and cannot be shipped from the US...

If you can't ship it maybe you can have someone drive it across the border? Label clearly Photo Chemistry - or repackage in cake mix boxes?

Artcraft will ship to Canada. I've ordered catechol and lots of other stuff from them. Alternatively, Nymoc in Toronto has been recommended to me a few times. I've never ordered from them so I have no idea which compounds they stock, but it might be worth a try. I don't remember them having an online catalogue so you might have to call.

Hi muskedear.

I am not impartial in this post, but you can take a look to my website page http://www.argentix.ca/rawchems.php?=SID&mqry=sp0002 for raw chemicals.
Others products available

Mod, sorry if I broke any rule...

Why not just order the mixed up solution from Photographer's Formulary?

Hi Folks,

Thanks for your suggestions.

Meanwhile, I found out that B&H in NY offer free shipping for orders > $99 and they do ship Pyrocat HD powder kits to Canada; but they do not ship the glycol-based liquid across the border.

Action plan is to order powder from B&H and find glycol in Canada (looks like there is a supplier here...).

Seeing Artcraft ships to Canada - go with them. Rock solid and reliable.

Send a note to John and Murray at Nymoc in Toronto - I've used them to order chemicals here in Canada and they've been great to deal with. I know they stock the stuff for Pyrocat HD: nymoc@bellnet.ca

I have used Nymoc in Toronto for years for catechol to make pyrocat. Support Canadian companies!

I use Nymoc as well. They've been fantastic.
