DFSB-C05G Fluorescent Dye Product Introduction.
Risk Reactor Inc's Clear Fluorescent Blue Dye is stable, light fast and can be used with a variety of solvents. It is used in security inks, paints, coatings, glue, adhesives, tracing, and other applications. Our DFSB-C0 Clear Blue is used in numerous applications and is one item to always include with your order. Clients also use this dye to add to other pigmented mediums to add depth, color, brightness, or a dual effect. For Non-Destructive Testing purposes the DFSB-C0 is the workhorse used by it or in addition to other colorants. This is a light colored powder that when dissolved completely it is absolutely clear or invisible to the naked eye and will show an intense bright color under Risk Reactor Black Light. The color can shift from blue to white depending on the concentration in your medium.

DFSB-C0 Clear Blue Fluorescent Dye is used in solvent based paints, fugitive adhesives, thermoplastics, coatings, printing inks, security inks, anti-counterfeiting inks, man-made fibers, and as a tracer. DFSB-C0 can be used in food packaging applications and is subject to provisions of Title 21, Code of Federal Regulations, Sections 175.105,178.3297. It can also be used in adhesives, olefin polymers, polystyrene and rubber-modified polystyrene, polyvinyl chloride, polyacetal, and polycarbonate.
Risk Reactor Inc’s DFSB-C05G is used in:
Fugitive Glue Application: Simply add this dye to any glue or adhesive that the dye will be soluble in. This is a very strong fluorescent dye, so a little will go a long way. The clearer the adhesive or glue, the less you will need to see it. Final loadings of the DFSB-C0 Clear Blue Fluorescent Dye can be as low as .0001%. Risk Reactor Inc also carries water-based additives, such as product codes IFWB-C0 and DFDRY, among many others. See our Fluorescent Dyes Water Based for more information.
Coating Coverage: DFSB-C0 Clear Blue Fluorescent Dye provides an excellent means to determine coverage of either conventional or UV cure coatings. Small amounts act as a tracer, which when viewed under a Risk Reactor Black Light, indicating whether or not a uniform coating coverage has been achieved. This is especially useful for clear coatings, where coverage can be difficult to determine by conventional means.
Leak Application: Our Clear Blue Fluorescent Dye has been used to invisibly trace fuel leaks in aircraft fuel systems. This dye is highly concentrated and is clear when diluted. Under long wave black light activation, the tagged fuel fluoresces a strong, bright blue making it easy to find the leaks. Take some of the same fuel that will be tagged and mix the dye into it. The dye will instantly go into solution. Always do this under a black light, so you can see what you are doing. Be aware, fuel is highly flammable and any light source must be secure. The concentration level in the final loading can be .1-.0001% depending on numerous factors, such as the strength of the black light, the control of the ambient light when searching for the leak, the color of the background, etc. Use the mixed concentrate and enter into the fuel system.
Identification: DFSB-C0 Clear Blue Fluorescent Dye may be used in printing inks to facilitate the quick identification of security bonds, and also for a safeguard against forgeries, such as bank notes.
Waxes, Fats and Oils: DFSB-C0 Clear Blue Fluorescent Dye is soluble in waxes, paraffins, fats, mineral and vegetable oils, plus it may be mixed in with these substances as a solution for an organic solvent. Very small amounts of this dye effectively serve to mask the slight yellowness inherent in such products. Due to its good light fastness in organic solvents, and its low toxicity, DFSB-C0 can be added to numerous technical liquids.

How to Use UV Reactive Colorants:
DFSB-C0 is widely used in a variety of industries from tracing leaks, fugitive glue, NDT, conformal coatings, to security inks. Usually you would dissolve DFSB-C0 Clear Blue Fluorescent Dye directly into one of your components. or a compatible organic solvent (see table above for solvent to choose from) for your medium. If the latter, put your concentrate into your medium after it has been dissolved. If you have any un-dissolved dye, you have too high of a loading for that solution. We recommend using Risk Reactor Black Lights to view the dye for inspection, effect, or manufacturing line.
This is a light colored powder, that when dissolved completely, it is absolutely clear or invisible to the naked eye. The color will show up with an intense bright response under Risk Reactor Black Light. The color can shift from blue to white depending on the concentration in your medium. White color being a higher loading of dye while a blue color is a low loading.
