About

Dyes can be added at varying concentrations to produce shades ranging from light to dark. Dye concentration is usually stated as a percentage based on the weight of the antifreeze. The following use rates represent typical applications for dyes in powder form. Blue, green and violet shades generally require less dye than do red, orange and yellow shades. Deep red shades require high use rates.

 

Shades

Use rates for dyes in powder form:

     Very Light Shade

            1-lb per 25,000 gallons                 (4.8 ppm)

    Light Shade

            1-lb per 10,000 gallons                 (12 ppm)

     Medium Shade

            1-lb per 5,000 gallons                    (24 ppm)

     Dark Shade

            1-lb per 2,000 gallons                    (60 ppm)

    Very Dark Shade

            1-lb per 500 gallons                        (240 ppm)

 

*Note: ppm means parts per million. When adding dye to liquid, 1ppm is equivalent to 1 milligram per liter (mg/l)

 

Liquid Dyes

Liquid dyes offer the convenience of ease of use. Since they are already in liquid form they can be added directly to antifreeze/engine coolant. They also tend to be cleaner to use because they do not have the dust issue of powders.

 

Use Rates for Liquid Dyes

The use rate for liquid dyes is calculated by comparing their dye strength (color concentration) to that of the powder to determine a strength adjustment factor. When comparing dyes in liquid form to their corresponding powder form, the powder is considered to be at 100% strength. Thus a 20% liquid dye is used at 5 times the rate of the powder (100% / 20% = 5).
