Get the X1 concentrate, i think the 250ml makes 2 litres when mixed with di water ie: 1750ml of di then add the 250ml concentrate = 2 litres.

Just follow the directions on your bottle. I believe that's correct, but it may vary.

To get a red/blood red you need red dye and blue dye. Add red until you get the intensity of red you want, then add blue to darken it up. I'd start with clear coolant and dye it yourself if you're trying to get a specific shade. Or if you just want a generic shade you could always just go with premixed colours.

And go slowly. One drop, wait 5 minutes for it to spread. Otherwise you will end up with ugly purple.

Thanks for the help guys but I'm puzzled. Aren't dyes supposedly leave more stains as compared to concentrates? Shouldn't we go for the x1 instead of dyes?

@Frestoinc
Use mayhems nonstain dye. Uv will always dye. Watch the vid. Important truck for blood red from Mick himself. Helped me.

How i would do it is get X1 clear

then get Mayhems Non Stain Blue Dye 15ml

and Mayhems Non Stain Pink / Red Dye 15ml

first make up your X1 into a large container, then add your red drop by drop to the red you want, then add the blue drop by drop to how dark you want it. thumb.gif

Links are not working but thanks for your response as I was wondering the same thing as the person who asked. thumb.gif

I have 2 liters of pre mixed pastel Red but there's quite the negative feedback on it and particularly how ph sensitive it is so not sure if I should use it or not.

Links should work soon, there doing maintenance on the site. Pastel red is quite sensitive, but aslong as you clean your system and the rads are clean you should be ok.thumb.gif I would use pastel white then use non staining red dye.
