Chemical Suppliers in the UK


I need to get hold of some chemicals to create colour some copper sheet. The chemicals I need are such formulas as ferric nitrate, Sulfurated potash and Ferric chloride I can only find suppliers who supply it by the ton. Does anyone know a supplier in the UK who can supply these and ond other similar chamicals in smaller quantities?

Ferric Chloride should be available in quantities around 1lbs from most Electronics supplyers... check out

--> components --> PCB & Circuit development --> Etching equipment

Places like RS Components or Farnell might be cheaper in larger quantities..

stock all the chemicals you ask about, and supply in small quantities.

I haven't dealt with them. If you do could you please let me know how it turns out.

look for chemical supply companies in your area. Phone round saying "I'd like to place a small order by credit card", and see which ones don't hang up.

Try the local chemist - the druggist - the local place you buy pills.

Often they have direct access to chemical companies so they can make up some versions they sell.

I used to buy some chemicals from my pharmacy when I was a young man.

If you have a university near by - might call the chemistry department and ask to talk to someone. They might have better names for local supplies.
