Activator formulation (with stabilizer) for ABS plastics
Please send me a formulation for activator and stabilizer for ABS plastics so as to avoid pitting.
The formulation which I am using now is:
palladium chloride + tin chloride + tartaric acid + sodium stannate + hydrochloric acid
but pitting is observed on some articles
maybe some stabilizer is needed?Vijaykumar S Ijeri

We can't publish unattributed formulas here due to trade secret issues. But if you can refer Mr. Ijeri to a publication it would be appreciated.
