    Is Silo2Care for RGP polishing still available?

    For years I have been using Silo2Care for polishing RGP lens. It is now on indefinite back order by Amcon. I called a phone number on the bottle, but no luck. Does anyone know if Polychem Inc is out of business?? or if the product is still available??

    jrumbaug,

    Before Silo2Care, I used Xpal, but you had to mix it. I had a freezer bag full of the stuff at one time. It looked like powdered cocaine. When I have more time I'll tell you a story about how that almost got me into a lot of trouble after bomb scare situation in the building where I worked.

    Check with you CL lab for availability and recommendations.

    Hope this helps,
