Catalyst Measuring Syringes

Note that we sell plastic syringes, and I would recommend them for small quantities of catalyst. It's much easier to get an accurate measurement when mixing small batches of resin.

Safety

Be careful not to get any MEKP on your skin. It is corrosive and will cause a chemical burn. Wear eye protection, and ideally a face mask, and coat.
