IanRivlin Posted September 23, 2017 Share Posted September 23, 2017 I just mixed up some new XTOL, using the 5 liter pack. I poured the contents of packet "A" into 4 liters of water - but didn't fully check to see if it had fully dissolved (I don't think it did). It had a blue tint to the liquid, right from the get-go. Nonetheless, I then went on to packet "B" and carried on stirring (Using a magnetic stirrer). Shortly afterwards, I looked at the container and it became apparent that there was a white solid mass at the bottom. I carried on stirring - filling up the air dead space with Tetenal Protectan, to reduce the chances of oxidation. I let it stir for hours. It's all dissolved now and is clear BUT it's still obviously blue - didn't darken or lighten at all, after packet "B" was used.. Usually, after packet "A", it's slightly orange, then after packet "B" is added, it goes clear. Does anyone have any ideas whether this batch is likely to be useless or is the blue color not too big a deal? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
