    I received this email today, presumably
    because they have been searching websites
    that mention photo chemicals.

    I have never dealt with this company, and
    have no interest beyond informational.

  2. Company looks legit enough. I seriously doubt, however, that you're
    going to be able to buy small, convenient packages of photo chemicals
    from them. They're an industrial supply operation. (I wonder what the
    smallest amount is that they would sell: 55-gallon barrels? and if
    perhaps a bunch of folks could band together to make up an order.)

    Also curious what the relationship is between photo chemicals and
    oil-field chemicals.

  3. Also, how would you manage the paperwork to get it through customs?

  4. Good question. Presumably someone (the importer) would need to have the
    proper licenses and such. Lotsa paperwork, but it's probably possible.
    (I have worked with people trying to get stuff through customs, and it
    can be a bitch. You definitely need a broker or agent, and a good one at

  5. Well, as I said, it *might* make sense to buy chemicals in bulk if
    several people set up some kind of buying club to pool their needs, but
    it would require a lot of coordination to make it happen.
