Copper Sulfate Bath Formula For 1 gallon of distilled water- 32oz. Copper Sulfate 120 ml. Sulfuric Acid 10 ml. Brightener
To Mix- Mix the bath 1 or 2.5 gallons at a time. Pour a 2.5 gallon container of distilled water into a CLEAN 5 gallon bucket. Carefully measure the sulfuric acid and add it to the water. Carefully weigh the copper sulfate and add it to the mixture. Carefully measure the brightener and add it to the mixture. Using a 1" thick CLEAN pyrex rod (grind off the sharp end) stir the mixture until all of the copper sulfate has dissolved. Usully takes several minutes of stirring. Be careful not to spill. Pour the mixture into the tank until the desired amount of bath is made.
Note: When mixing NEVER put water into acid! This can result in explosions!ALWAYS put acid into water. Then mix in the copper sulfate.
Note: Additional brightener must be added according to use. This is determined by amp-hours. For every 40 amp-hours you add 10 ml. The basic formula is 1 ml. brightener for every 5 hours at 1 amp.
