Buying chemicals in Poland "OTC"


So I am in Poland visiting the family of my girlfriend and was hoping to may get some nice chemicals in my hands wich are either too expensive or hard to aquire in Germany. I had no idea how it will turn out and didn´t expect anything as I never tried to find a supplier in Poland. But I thought there have to be chemicals like KNO3 wich should be OTC because there has to be a reason why I like to call polish firecrackers "flying fingers".


It tourned out they are not OTC, they are off the pallet.
I asked for 3 or 4 kg´s of KNO3 and I expected an answer like in Germany (too dangerous, they don´t sell, etc) but the answer was "Too less, we only have 25kg bags for 170 Zloty (40 Eur)". Of course I bought it and it turned out to be ACS/Ph.Eur. grade stuff. There were no questions asked, wich was totally unbelievable for me, maybe I am too "german".
They had everything I could think about at the moment and more in the stock!
It was amazing, I think I have to marry my girlfriend ;)

The only drawbacks are that you need to take quite big amounts like 25kg+ but they are cheap, and you can´t trust them with the ACS grade. The guy who helped me finding the KNO3 didn´t had a clue about chemistry and while looking around, he put his hand in an open bag with Cr(III) and Cr (VI). I dont even know why they where open. And you need somebody who speaks polish or the substance translated in polish written down.

I myself will never ever order expensive chemicals in Germany again. I found my supplier where I can buy lifetime stocks of chemicals or low! Chemia Bielsko, where I have been

I think I will, just waiting to get two tiny pieces of the rocks they brought with the apollo missions for the rings ;) .
Nevermind, somebody of you has a good idea for the rings? I really dislike diamonds. Rh, Pt and a nice stone are the way to go IMHO.

I'm from Poland and i can recommend you companies such as:
http://hadronscientific.pl/en/ - cheap, useful chemicals ;
http://chemik.aip.pl/ - variety of chemicals, very vast assortiment even some exotic ones, cheap;
https://pol-aura.pl/ - good quality stuff,
http://www.odczynnikichemiczne.sklepna5.pl - there you can buy little quantities just to test reaction, also vast assortiment and some exotic stuff, you can also order bigger quantities but you have to text the owner.
https://www.sklep.archem.com.pl/ - there you can buy lots of acids, for just about nothing, for example 20l of sulfuric acid costs just about 90zł (20eur) + shipping to Poland like 150zł (35eur)

You guys sound very lucky! I wish I lived in Poland.

Tell me something bad about living in Poland to keep me from up and moving there.

Yes it is! Thanks for your recommendations, they are really helpful! I really love the mentality of poland. They are not feared about new or unknown stuff. They are amazed if you know stuff.

Well, the woman are beautiful, stuff is pretty cheap if you exchange from another currency and if you buy a pallet of beer on a festival with a million visitors, it´s cold!

If I had a choice I would go for rhodium... but you will need a very skilled craftsman to make a durable ring out of rhodium; won't be cheap! But hey! If you want to marry her, go for it.

I've had a bad experience last year with https://keten.com.pl/
Never sent the goods, plays dumb and plays dead most of the time.

Basically a thief.

My only bad experience with a Polish supplier.

I of course strongly recommend Mario from this forum and Onyx Met (elements candy store)

Also the very interesting stuff with supliers in Poland is that many of them sell a lot of suspicious but still legal chemicals. Such as methylamine hydrochloride with photo of barrel written "Breaking bad" on it and they dont give a shit. You can also buy p2np, formamide, methylformamide, substituted acetophenones, but I'm pretty sure that if you order p2np or such, you can be checked by police, because however chemicals more dangerous are monitored and p2np's use is only one.
And of course things doesn't go so well if it's matter of local chemical shops. You must sign yourself in, when you buy acids or such and if you dont have company youre not gonna get lot of things and of course you must be an adult to even buy a salt from shop (in comparison to internet buying I, as not adult person can get everything by myself).
