    Yep.
    Thats what I was referring to in post #6.

    If you call the glass supply shops and ask for catalyst theyll ask if you mean MEK.

    For small batches like spot gel repairs I’ve used disposable syringes for measuring catalyst accurately to a fraction of a millilitre. One of the drug stores near me actually gives them out for free (targeting diabetics).

    I agree Instigator. An accurate catalyst dispenser is essential equipment. Disposable Plastic Pippettes are useful for measuring catalyst for very small mixes. And they are reusable. Along with a set of digital scales. For small mixes a cheap set of digital kitchen scales works well.
    If a supplier is mixing up their terminology between MEK and MEKP, I would be finding another supplier. That is going to confuse a novice who is not as experienced as you fellas are. There are other catalysts besides MEKP, like CHP and BPO, which might prompt a supplier to ask which one you wanted. But there is a huge difference between MEK and MEKP. Methyl Ethyl Ketone is a solvent used mostly for thinning epoxy and clean up. I don't thin epoxies with MEK personally. But it is common practice. Methyl Ethyl Ketone Peroxide is a catalyst.

    100% agreed.

    I only knew it as MEK as that’s what everyone that I worked for or bought it from, called.

    Preventing confusion is a good thing though ��
