This may vary on your pharmacy but for the most part I would think any younger and you would probably still want your parent or guardian to go in with you. I checked all of my stores that had a pharmacy, and they all sold the right kind of alcohol. But, surfaces, equipment, tanks all retain it. Cheaper and faster to buy what you need and be done. The difference is that 99% is a significantly higher fire hazard. Then when I pump out the Form Wash it goes into those large containers. You can cruise the plumbing aisle and put together a column still that will get you to that point, for a couple hundred bucks in copper and such, but getting past there without some heavy duty stuff, not gonna happen.Next
They were extremely hesitant at first, as they were not sure why anyone would need such high concentrations of Isopropyl Alcohol, but when I explained why I needed it they were more than willing to help. And folks the primary difference between 99% and 90% is not inhalation health hazard- the fumes you breath are the same either way as it evaporates. I probably went to much into detail about something this simple, but thanks for reading. Weird you can't find it locally, every drugstore and pharmacy has it here. Aside from people potentially passing out from inhalation, I could only find one instance of contact exposure, but the patient was soaking rags and applying it to their arms daily.Next
Packaging Options: Isopropyl Alcohol 99% comes in standard package sizes of: 4 gal cases, 33 lb 5 gal pails, 362 lb 55 gal drums, 1970 lb 300 gal totes, and full bulk tank trucks. Denatured alcohol has additives so people can't drink it. Store it in a well ventilated area, with the lid tightly closed to avoid product evaporation. I will look for some 91% next time I get a chance. Again, much easier that trying to pump it back into 1 gallon bottles.Next
Ignoring flammability concerns, I think the resin poses a greater health risk than the isopropyl. Now some of you might be younger saying well I'm only 12 can I still ask for it? I had a vacuum chamber oven I could put the phones into and dry out at 40 deg C and low enough pressure to cause the water to boil at that temp. Reagent grade product has been purified to remove common constituents that may be present in industrial grade material. Sticky particles can be easily wiped away as they are brought into a solution. You should be able to find it in the paints sections. So the resin might take up alcohol faster.Next
I researched it for work years ago, we were using it as a cleaning agent and they had very strict chemical substance controls. Even wiping up a drop of resin with it leaves the tacky surface. Buy Denatured Alcohol, this will work better than the isopropyl, and it won't leave that nasty film on everything, You can buy it at places like homedepot, menards, and lowes. Actually denatured alcohol is not recommended for boards. Haven't tried it but been meaning to as I use lots and have a machine that distills it continuously but normal distillation only gets to the mid 80s. So a lot of people who are new to the whole computer thing don't know where to go to pick up the right kind of alcohol for cleaning their processor, and other components that may require cleaning from really pure isopropyl alcohol.Next
Please see for full safety and compatibility information. If they say they don't carry it and cannot give it to you, ask them if perhaps one of their suppliers offers it and if they might be able to place an order for it. I was getting three gallons of abdick 99% for 100. However, I use 91% for pin stuff, since denatured can have various liquids added to it. Those can be washed with a strong detergent line Yellow Magic 7.Next
You should avoid contact with the product and its vapors. My understanding is that alcohols are capable of soaking into polymers that make up components and can cause swelling. There are different additives depending on the brand's formulation and some are bad for boards. Also look under the name Methyl Hydrate. Additionally, we carry a standard dilution, see.Next
I also buy spring water in the 2. They do not normally carry it, but their suppliers do offer it so it is easy for them to order a bottle for you. In my case they ordered it, and I picked it up 2 days later. I have resurrected a number of mobile phones dropped in fresh and seawater, the trick is to remove the battery immediately before the voltage can cause irreversible electrolysis damage. It's a cleaner Did you try the camping section? Talk to the pharmacist at the counter where you order prescription medicines.
