seems to me that encapsulated is a fancy term for such things as Cadmium selenate which is a compound. We did use it back when Chuck and I were doing the color rods but the difference wasn't really appreciable. The goal needs to be getting the sulfur content down to where it should be. Cad sulfide just has way more than you need. I would agree that the boro guys are getting good results . I suspect it's since the boro is so much more viscous than a zinc potash glass would be at a fixed temp. I think the other aspect of using the compounds is there is less volatilization. I haven't seen anyone really prove that out.
Where are we going and why am I in this basket?
