Need to identify some powder

#1 Postby AlanF » Tue Mar 24, 2020 12:51 pm

I have a 4Kg plastic bottle of ADI powder which has the front label missing. The back label has MEM 4959 on it. I think its probably 2208 but am hoping someone can confirm?

My 4kg of 2208 has MEM5559 on the back. I think it's a batch number, not a powder identifier. Contact ADI to be safe.
