Sensitizer for 2-Part Silver creates an invisible chemical bond between the silver and the glass. This bond causes the silver to deposit evenly and stick to the surface. You must sensitize the surface before silvering.
MeasuringThis is a very concentrated product so we include a 1 ml syringe for measuring with every bottle we send out. When the syringe is full to the top, it contains 1 ml of Sensitizer. The syringe is marked in units of 1/10th of a milliliter. If you fill it to the top, you would add that amount of Sensitizer to 500 ml of distilled water. If you fill it to the 0.1 mark, you would add that amount of Sensitizer to 50 ml of distilled water.
