      "inactives"  Bookmark   

Swim was just recently in an independent dollar store when he noticed some 96 count red hots for a dollar a box..... Looking at the long list of inactives on the back of the box he noticed some unfamiliar boys on the block.Thinking it would be a crime not to give these darlings a whirl. Not too concerned with the povidone he thought he would list all the inactives straight off the box. So here goes......acacia,calcium carbonate,camauba wax,colloidal sillicon dioxide,confectioner's sugar,FD&Cred no.40,gelatin,kaolin,methylparaben,pharmaceutical glaze,povidone,powdered cellulose,pregelatinized starch,propylparaben,sodium benzoate,stearic acid,sucrose,talc,titanium dioxide,white wax...........Swim has used red hots containing povidone in a birch with no problems but these seem to have a few more additives than the previous ones.Shouldn't think there will be any problems but still would like like some feed back on any problems one might have experienced with these listed here.........

Micro: These seem to be rather tame.
No notable complex polymers other than the povidone.
A tetra wash will rid the povidone.
Ibee would follow that with an alky extract and then an acetone wash.
