Has anyone used a system with these two types of tubing while using the pastel type of coolant? If you did, did you experience any discoloration? I would really appreciate it if someone answered soon, going to need some kind of tubing within the next two weeks and I really don't want to use Durelene because it has plasticizer in it.

I think is too early to talk about the Primochil advanced tubing since its been launched a week ago, you just have to try it yourself or wait a few more weeks (or months).

Tygon Ultra Chemical Restintant is not crystal clear tubing, i don't think that any dye or pastel fluid will shine with that, but at least you don't have to deal with plasticizer.

I recomend you Durelene, it's cheap, take long time to cloud and it's proven that its crystal clear for a while too. Choice is yours.

I am going to be using Blood Red Pastel so its fine if the tubing isn't super clear, just don't want any discoloration or pasticizer leaching. I know, hoping that someone has already tested Primochill advanced is wishful thinking. Hopefully someone eventually does it though. I guess I'm probably going to go with Tygon Ultra Chemical Resistant.

There is no such thing as average sorry to say. All so it all depends on what depth of colour you need but as long as you don't add UV pink into it you should be fine with hardly any staining. Ive used up to 20mls in one loop before and its been fine to get a deep ruby red that looked nearly black .

Thanks Mayhem, now i have (almost) no concerns biggrin.gif

i guess that the shade of red is everyone's personal thing, so i think i'll be fine. (for how many loops would one bottle suffice?)

also, what do you mean by "until light was shone on it" ? did it ruin the effect or what?

@RKTGX95 colour will look darker with out any light in your system. As soon as you add light they become transparent expect for pastel colours which absorb light instead and opaq. UV reflective dyes how ever reflect light back at you giving the illusion that they glow. And aurora reflects light back at you giving you the illusion its sparkling.

Blue is our strongest colour and depending on how deep you would like the colour can fill a bath tub of water blue. Red is about 1/4 as strong as Blue so should fill at least 4 to 6 systems depending on the colour you need.

Since the new dyes now come in 15ml bottles this gives you 50% head room to play with for less than cost than it was before.

Hi Mayhem,

Have you any suggestions regarding this: http://www.overclock.net/t/1327417/mayhems-aurora-depositing-on-plexi-blocks-how-to-clean

I am getting some depositing from aurora on my blocks, and am hoping to avoid having to open them up to clean them. Someone has suggested trying a flush with 50:50 water/vinegar, any other suggestions?

i just wanted to add a bit of white lighting to showcase the build as a whole. (since any other colour would kill the carefully picked theme)
i think that a single, not long White, LED strip would suffice for that. (and why red is so weak compared to the blue?)

any idea when PPCS would get the new dyes? (is it anytime soon or should i just buy the existing one)

@BorisTheSpider answered it in you question.

@RKTGX95 Will need to clear there 10ml versions first before they get more in. Like any other company that has the 10ml in.

I'm having a problem with one of my rigs. I have red pastel in both but one is turning a different color, this is the same system I had a very bad plastercizer problem, link. I replaced the tubing and flushed the system with hot tap water for 30 mins, then filled it with the pastel. I have tried using a ph strip, but it sucked up the dye and I can't see what color it is. I'm guessing my ph level is high, I plan on draining it and filling it with distilled plus baking soda, how much should I use and how long should I let it run?

When i use the baking soda trick i use about 1 to 2 tea spoons per 1 Ltr and leave it for about 1/2 hour then rise out. then i test with DI water in just to check PH levels. And then use new fluids. Its a very rare occasion this happens when red changes colour but 99.9% it really is down to the PH of the water. The new red were working on is more tolerant with a wider PH range than what we currently use.

MyBadOmen will attest to it being solid, and having no clouding issues. However he seems to be an absolute zealot about it. Kinda smells like some money exchanged hands in order to boost the rep of the stuff.
