post #1881 of 15363
I have been toying around with some different ideas, and I wanted to know what you guys think. Keep in mind I have never used Mayhem's dye before.

I am thinking of using Deep Red Mixed with a few drops or UV Pink to get a UV Deep Red color going. I plan on using PrimoChill PrimoFlex Advanced LRT Clear tubing.

I was also wanting to mix in the XT-1 coolant but I am not sure if I should be looking at the XT-1 or just using the X1. Any input or advice is greatly appreciated!

One more question I have is will this obscure or damage a Red FrozenQ Quad Spiral res?

One thing I will answer for you with confidence is that UV Pink will stain. Mayhem's warn about this a lot. They have been trying new Pink's but I don't think they have been solved yet.

@Agent_kenshin The colour difference you see is a batch difference. What you have there is When one batch from a supplier or from us has moved to the next batch. Because everything is done by hand from the ground up every time we make dyes they are always slightly different and this is seen when they are put together. Mixing the two though will have no effect. The batches are made weekly so there should be no more than 3 to 4 weeks difference between them.

As we grow we will increase batch sizes but we now make over 100+ Products for ourselves and different companies hence storing such a large array of products can be a headache hence why the batches are kept quite small and fresh.

@Pole04 UV pink will stain you res. do not use it on such a nice res that is hard to access and clean out.

Thanks Mayhem and ginger! I will just go with a bit lighter Deep Red Mixture then. I will have to look into possibly getting UV reactive red tubing or simply adding more leds to the tubing around the loop. I look forward to trying this out!

Will the XT-1 glycol mixture play nicely with a mostly nickle/copper loop? Also are there any indications that it shouldn't be used in a loop with acrylic reservoirs?

Yes XT1 is perfect for any type of plating. It has No issues with any thing in a loop.

Hey, I was wondering if anyone knows what happens when you mix UV Clear Blue with normal Red mayhems dye. I was thinking of having a loop that's just straight red in normal light, but a bit deeper when it gets hit w/ UV (kind of going for a hybrid blood red when lit).

I just recently finished my loop and used Mayhems biocide and dye along with distilled water. I tested the water with the included test strips and added biocide to achieve the PH balance of 7. I then added dye to achieve this color. Picture was taken a week ago.


This is how it looks like as of now.


Its completely clear. The color never really stood out though the tubing, could only tell that there was dye from the reservoir. I'm using darlene tubing and thought that was the reason. I was going to buy some white pastel and add the purple dye. But the dye is completely gone and the loop has not been touched. Not sure what happened to the dye.
