Okeanos 2 is a blue striking and reducing color. Reformulated with the same nucleation system as Terra 3 and Ekho 2, it strikes to a range of blues, greens, purples and amber. It works well on the surface or encased. Super-heating can cause phase separation, resulting in webbing. Okeanos 2 is capable of developing a subtle luster and retaining that luster under clear encasement.
Okeanos 2 is easy to strike using the reset/cool/warm sequence. Our benchmark times for surface application are Reset/30 seconds, cool/30 seconds, strike. Specific times and color outcomes vary depending on several factors.
Our second quality rods are less than perfect in shape. They may be too large, too small, too short, chipped, twisted or have an inclusion. They have all passed both our compatibility test and our color test, just not our pretty rod test.
