• Accessories to be used with Platinum Ware
• Tongs of different lengths
• Re-shaping molds to restore your original Platinum ware to its original shape
Chemplex® has a variety of tongs that are used to prevent contamination of the precious metal equipment when placing it in the furnace or removing it from the furnace. The Chemplex® crucible tongs are fitted with platinum shoes or solid platinum tips.
It is recommended to purchase the re-shaper option with the purchase of your new platinum ware. During normal use, the precious metal laboratory equipment is sensitive to mechanical deformation due to their use at high temperatures and resulting in loss of their original hardness. The walls of the crucibles and dishes can become wrinkled after they have been used several times, thus making cleaning more difficult. The shape can be restored by carefully using a wooden stick to form the platinum at room temperature using the optional plastic re-shapers, or formers, that match the crucible and dish sizes.
