Titan-Etch is an efficient and powerful etchant for titanium. It offers a safer and cheaper alternative to the hazardous and strongly acidic Kroll's Reagent (a mixture of hydrofluoric acid (HF) and nitric acid (HNO3)). Titan-Etch delivers excellent etching results while being only mildly acidic, making it the safest titanium etching solution available on the European market today.
Titan-Etch contains similar ingredients as the well-known Multi-etch (only sold in the US & Canada). Titan-Etch is available in Europe, but can only be shipped to Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Spain.Titan-Etch:
Titan-Etch is delivered as a solid, which must be dissolved in distilled water to produce the etching solution. 250 g of Titan-Etch is enough for almost 2 Liters of etchant. The etchant can be stored and re-used for a long time.On the right is a picture of anodised titanium bolts etched with Titan-Etch. The voltage numbers indicate the voltage required for achieving the colors shown above the numbers.
