My dad used to be a dentist (used to be cause he passed away) and he used to have many patients who came to have their teeth whitened-he always warned them though, that although their teeth will be whiter in colour, whitening weakens the tooth enamel

-i'd stick my head on a block and say that the scrubber also weakens the tubing(sure it looks better for 2 secs)- apart from what it's corrosive qualities do to the rest of the system wink.gif

Can't get Masterkleer atm cause its sold out with no ETA in my size.
I've got old Primo white tubing which really has 0 issues (been reusing it for like 1,5years, only now has it started to get an ever so slight greenish tinge to it on the inside) but moving to 1/2" Bitspower compression fittings with 1/.2" tube (and was going to get Mayhems Sunset Yellow Pastel).
XSPC got the same issues? (again not a big issue if it clouds slightly when its got Yellow Pastel running through it, but if its going to get a nasty white deposit all through it then might cause blockages and the likes, i best avoid it tongue.gif)
Cheers

If you are going to use a particular Mayhem's product, just look at the post and see what tubing Mick suggests for use with whichever one of his products you are going to get-i trust his feedback thumb.gif

He said " its not just our product etc.. etc...!?"

Lol! this is a true comedy of errors, not to mention an insult to past customers.

So he essentially said that their new stuff is plasticizer free right? thinking.gif

I have to throw a few adjustments into my loop at the moment but soon I'll be able to comment on the XSPC tubing. I can say that it must have plenty of plasticizer in it... cuz it flexes identically (in fact, I'm hard pressed to find any difference in feel, look, etc.) however, in my case the decision was somewhat of a strategic one. Let me explain - although I read plenty of negative opinions regarding XSPC tubing, not nearly as many as Primochill but plenty still, I selected the XSPC Raystorm as my CPU block of choice (for performance reasons) and XSPC Razor blocks for my GPUs (for cost/appearance reasons) ... even if some of the plasticizer leeches it's not likely to significantly affect my RADs. So that means that at least 50% of the cost of my loop is in XSPC products. If I'm using their tubing and have a problem significant enough to damage their blocks... the largest scapegoat is their product too. thumb.gif Not that I would expect them to suddenly ship me out all new stuff if I did have a problem... but I would definitely expect them to listen to my complaints and potentially try some simple remediation if expedient.

Socks... I think Capt Proton was referring to the fact that you keep saying "flex ingredient or whatever" when the title of the thread says "Plasticizer" in it (as well as about 200 individual posts) - therefore it is pretty reasonable to assume that despite saying something to that effect... you obviously have not read through this entire thread - or at least not read with comprehension. wink.gif

Good luck mate, hey maybe using coolants or pastels will lessen the effect on your tubing-i hope so thumb.gif

Actually i have been reading it i'm just saying what the spokes person told me.
He stated "It it was plasticizer it would not just come off as seen with the system scrubber.
I know what it is, but i'm just relaying what he told me.
