If you were willing to go with black but didn't like the writing, and your want to avoid plasticizer but not see clouded tubing - seems like a good candidate for sleeved tubing. That way if it's cloudy you don't see it, and if it's plasticizer-free then you don't have to worry about actual damage - just aesthetics. I realize it's a subjective thing - but I think sleeved tubing looks sweet... second only to copper pipes really. I wanted to do that with mine (and still will I think) but with 3/8X5/8 it's more difficult to find sleeving that fits but is very tight at 5/8" - most of the high-quality stuff is 1/2" (sata) or 3/4". frown.gif

I did contemplate sleeving my tubes but its not really going to help since my res just looks horrific at the moment.
Two older photos i had after 2 months

Hi guys, i want to show you my Durelene Tubing after 1 month, it seems to be yellow. I'm using Mayhems Pastel Blueberry. Also, it's worth to clarify that there's no sign of plasticizer on the tubing.


Tygon E-1000, Brand New Durelene, Used Durelene, and Used Durelene Cleaned with water.


As you can see, Tygon E-1000 is not as clear as Durelene.

Mas que amarillo, se ve como verdoso.

Look back a few pages, i mentioned about the new LRT coloured tubing and when THEY (not my assumption biggrin.gif)said to me in an e mail it will be available-although the green is for sale in Australia according to 'Socks keep you warmer'

I'm sorry to have to say this, but that visible mess looks nothing like plasticizer at all-that could be one of many problems, but i have seen many pics of plasticizer residue, plus i had suffered it myself-nothing like that im afraid to say. start looking at how long since you last cleaned your loop, flux problems, etc etc-i am not saying that is what your problem is, but imo i highly doubt that its plasticizer.

Thanks very much for the pictures, every bit helps us to keep a sort of catalogue of tubing and its reactions to various coolants/liquids used within them.(+1 rep)

Note to those that don't know: the colouration on the tubing is NOT plasticizer, but mere staining that happens to ALL tubing with the use of dye (go to mayhems page for further info if not convinced), one more thing, and no apologies here:

The point of having this thread is to help each other out with information on tubing, where it can be purchased, how reliable it is etc-i keep seeing people (people that ask the same questions here) going over to the OCN gallery thread and asking where they can buy x tubing, or if x tubing has plasticizer probs etc.

Now im not a mod here, neither do i pretend to be, but firstly those questions over there are way off topic-hence the few replies, and secondly, whats the point of maintaining this thread then?

Well that was after around two months of use after i last cleaned my loop.
That is exactly as it looked after the first time i build my loop up and tore it down again.
All the rads and blocks were flushed for a LONG time under high pressure filtrated water.
The residue inside the res is exactly the same as the residue on the inside of the tubing.
The single block was copper and the rads are copper and brass.
used a kill koil.

If not plasticizer then what?
Numerous people have said it was plasticizer.

If this looks the same once i move away from using plastic tubing then i will know its not plasticizer.

The e1000 tygon seems pretty clear per the pictures.

Im not backseat moderating at all-i gave you a polite and reasonable answer.

What makes matters worse, is that THREE pages back you asked for the same information with regards to the UK, and not only were you given the relevant information by myself without thanks, but you were also given information on where the tubing is available atm in the States-i was merely reminding you-(so much for having to read through 211 pages of information)-so save that unnecessary aggressive reply for the play-ground please.
