Add the gutta percha to 60 (12 ounces) of the chloroform in a stoppered bottle, and shake frequently until solution is effected. Then add the lead carbonate, previously mixed with the remainder of the chloroform, shake thoroughly several times, and set aside until the insoluble matter has subsided. Finally, decant the clear liquid and keep it in a well-stoppered bottle.
This preparation is sometimes ordered twice this strength (Liquor Gutta Percha Fortior).
