Plasticizer Problems / Discussion / Gallery - Page 202

post #2011 of 3087
Thought I'd update, I've been using my Duralene tubing for a few months now and it's great stuff. A VERY slight haze developed after a week or so of using it but it hasn't gotten any worse since. I'm using distilled with Mayhems blue dye and it's working great, huge upgrade over the LRT. Love how it's so cheap too.

On Durelene the plasticizer will be a very slight haze ( clear, only visible went tubing is dry ) but it will never going to grow like on LRT tubing. you can see it in of my post just go back a few pages. LTR the plasticizer will be opaque and it can accumulate inside it can gunk and slow your loop.

Only haze in the tubing, there nothing to worry about. It wont spread in blocks. do you mind to post some pics.

This is after 2+ years
Also has been under pretty decent heat stress since an i7 860 at 4ghz puts out very large amounts of heat, the radiator and tubes actually get pretty warm after awhile.

I think you had confused yourself in certain point. Durelene Tubing has no names, logo of any kind letters on it. It is clear all around.

??? this is what i bought http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/dupvctu1idx3.html
It might have changed a bit, i did get it two years ago
post #2018 of 3087
Took my loop apart before the holiday, and found quite a bit of build up on the inside of my tubing. Luckily, nothing spread onto fittings or blocks except for a couple localized spots. I've now contacted Primochill about it. I really hope the new stuff works better...
post #2019 of 3087
Anyone have any experience with this Tygon Silver tubing?? It is really what I want, color wise, but dont want to risk it since it is over 5 times the price of the durelene. I have primochill tubing and dont want anymore tubing problems

EDIT: at this site it says the tubing has "Plasticizer-free inner bore" should I take this with a grain of salt??

Tygon is used in a lot of Food-service devices like beverage dispensers and what not. I wouldn't be concerned, personally. I've used Tygon for 2 years (the black), and it's served me extremely well. thumb.gif
