silly tubing/dye idea

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Has anyone seen anyone with UV tubing and a UV dye in the loop? Example UV green tube with UV purple or UV orange dye?

Was curious to how it might look under a UV light or if the tubing will just mask the basic dye or vice versa

figured id make a post tongue.gif might even have to try it myself

I've wondered about this myself

I have UV blue tubing and UV blue coolant. I may as well have used clear water as the UV reaction from the tubing more than overpowers the fluid. The only place the fluid reacts and is visible is the res, but even then the light has to be pretty direct. Check my sig rig.

I realize you're asking about mixing two colors, but I dont think you'll see the fluid other than in the res.

EDIT: Actually, if you check out my gallery and look at the set labeled "H220 Stint", that is the same tubing but with just water. As you can see the blacklight turns the once translucent tubing to a glowing, opaque color.

thanks for posting wizard smile.gif
I was curious because with my UV atomic green tubing I can still see THROUGH the tubing with the UV light on or off. This made me wonder if I could create a nice visual effect by using a certain dye color vs my tubing color.

Going to check out your rig in a bit smile.gif

I've seen green UV tubing with Green UV liquid in the same loop. It wasn't as cool as green UV liquid with clear UV tubing, or even the other way around.

yeah, while my loop is a pain to drain. it might be a while before I try but I wanted something like UV orange/red/purple dye with the UV green tubing, I wanted a really strong color inside to see what kind of effect it would have
