Nontoxic, high transmittance, high density fluid

  1. Feb 2, 2016 #1
    Hi, I'm looking for a liquid that is nontoxic, high transmittance, has a specific gravity higher than 1.3.
    Here is the catch. I'm using it to separate resin, so it can not dissolve or react with resin.
    there was a similar topic on high density fluid on other forums, but i'm using it differently.
    I'm no chemist.Really need some help.

    Glycerol has a density of 1.26. I don't know, however, if it will react with or dissolve resin. You could also try a water/sucrose solution: http://lclane.net/text/sucrose.html
