My Hand American boron carbide 1 micron paste seems to be significantly thicker compared to when I first got it. I assume it has dried out a bit. Is there anything I can add to the paste to thin it back out a bit?

Thanks,
Leigh

The description for this says it contains detergent, but no oil or water. Given the lack of oil, I think it would be safe to thin it with water. Just my opinion.

Be sure to shake it really well before you add anything to it.

Before I added anything I would PM Keith Degrau and ask him the best way to thin.

That might work of he answered his PMs but sadly he seems to ignore them. :(

I stopped in to send a PM to a member and didn't see any unanswered PM's but the boron question did come through my regular email and I responded.

That's the best way to reach me actually, an email to kdegrau@handamerican.com.

Basically my response to the boron issue is first do not let it freeze and try to store it at room temp. Cold weather can affect the mix and always close the nozzle tip after use.

Sometimes the compound won't flow properly due to a clogged nozzle. Remove it and run warm water through it until it's clear.

I have never added water to the mix but if a few drops increases the flow to a persons liking then go ahead and give it a try.

If a person feels they ended up with a lemon regarding any HA products they should contact me and we'll work it out.
