2. Pour the amount needed into a Pyrex® beaker.

3. Use at 120°F–140°F.

4. Attach platinized titanium anode to the positive (+) lead and immerse in solution.

5. Turn on the rectifier and operate at 1 to 3 volts.

6. Attach the workpiece to the negative (-) lead, immerse the workpiece. Agitate mildly.
