Plasticizer Rumor Debunked!!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well it seems Primochill has figured out what was causing the white powder build-up in the PrimoFlex Pro LRT, it would have been nice to know the exact cause though. I mean they obviously found the root cause since in November 1 2012 their releasing PrimoChill’s new PrimoFlex™ Advanced Tubing, but at least we will have tubing that supposedly will not have any of the white powder build-up issues that we have today!

To clarify: PrimoFlex Pro LRT is not defective and has not changed their formulation in the five years of production and is still the best tubing on the market. Production still remains in the United States. 95% of users will not experience an issue with the cloudiness/film. And what about the 5% who are? Well, we want ALL of our customers to be satisfied so we have come up with a couple of solutions.

Note: The film is purely an aesthetic issue and although ugly we have not found it to be harmful to any of the components. It will however continue to build up over time and this build up may cause performance issues.

Solution One: Contact PrimoChill to receive a free System Scrubber. This solution will gently clean the inner components of your system and remove the film that is collecting on the tubing.

Solution Two: Purchase PrimoChill’s new PrimoFlex™ Advanced Tubing. This tubing will cover the entire spectrum of system loops and their variable setups and will prevent the film from ever occurring. Estimated Launch Date: Nov 1, 2012

Hmmm...I'm almost certain they changed their chemistry. My December batch that clouded quick, andmy may batch that is clear after running for months aarecompletely different in pliability.

Members have already discovered the whole truth, laboratory glass jars were used in the experiment. Fill with distilled water and a piece of Primochill tubing was left overnight in the sealed laboratory glass jar, the next day white powder was found on the inside of the tubing. Not much of a surprise if you ask me.
