Can I see some pics of that? If you have a chance. I've used Primochill in the past, and I'm a new user to Durelene....so I'm interested in seeing others long term experiences with it.

I don't believe it, that picture of the piece of Primochill Advanced LRT tubing that used to have a white haze after 12 hours under hot tap water is now clear as if it were new again! The only thing I can think of is the hot water caused it to swell up, after cooling down it seems to have returned to a clear state!

Unbelievable! eek.gif

Got my order of Duralene from swc.com. Sadly, they sent the wrong size frown.gif. Waiting on response to send the correct size.

Oh man they already have their shipment of colored tubing, I want some to! Could I buy it directly from Primochill?
post #2147 of 3087
Looks like I'll be keeping the 20' of 3/8x1/2 Duralene they sent by accident. Any one interested send me a pm. I'm not interested in making a profit just enough to cover shipping smile.gif

What can I use to flush out the left over plasticizer in my loop, that wont harm my blocks and rads, I've seen pics of what viniger can do to the finishes on chrome colored fittings which I don't have (matte black BP fittings), I'm going to open up my CPU block, but need something to flush my two rads, gpu block and fittings

Very hot water and vinegar for your Rads (70%/30%)-wear gloves(yes that hot!) and give it the old shake treatment. Chances are though, that the amount of plasticizer residue left in your rads is minimal at best -plasticizer tends to primarily congregate in the tubing itself.

The blocks , simply remove them, open them and clean them with a soft rag, any plasticizer will wipe away very easily-then re assemble-obviously don't forget to fully flush your re assembled system with Distilled water afterwards.

One final tip-if you notice after cracking your blocks open, very little or no plasticizer deposits, then your rads wont even need the water\/vinegar treatment.

Its an easy job to do, but time consuming-have fun, hope this helps thumb.gif

That green tinge is absolutely normal for used tubing, the colour may be more intense due to dye usage, but even just Distilled water/SKC & a biocide will do this to ALL tubing after some time-and i mean ALL.

It isnt visually evident in coloured tubing for the obvious reasons wink.gif
