Congo Red Test Paper
The Congo Red test paper is used to test narrow-range acidic solutions. Congo Red Test Paper is used in acid washes for metal plating where pH values are very low (pH 1.0-3.0). The Congo Red indicator remains blue below pH 3.0, then gradually turns to a brilliant red above pH 5.2.
- Remove one Congo Red test paper from the vial, being careful not to touch the strip anywhere other than where you grasp it with your fingertips.
- Dip the strip into the solution to be tested for 1-2 seconds and remove.
- The Congo Red indicator remains blue below pH 3.0, then gradually turns to a brilliant red above pH 5.2.
NOTE: The solution must be water-based.
