Hey guys, havent posted in a while. Got a question for some of you. I found a distributor that sells 1 liter bottles of the aquious solution 10% (w/v). Anyone know how strong that is? This is for brightening aluminum and needs to be diluted a lot, just not too sure about the solutions and how strong that percent is because I havent mixed it myself before. Thanks!

Are you sure it is HCl? It is probably HF if it is designed for aluminum brightening. If it is, you would normally dilute it 50:1 or 2% from what you are sold. You can increase the concentration from there.

This is not hydrofloric. Its hydrochloric, which I prefer for aluminum brightening. They also sell hydrofloric but I've not had a lot of luck with it and its too expensive.
