EKWB Introduces EK-CryoFuel Solid Coolants

EK Water Blocks, premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to announce the launch of a brand new line of EK-CryoFuel coolants! EK-CryoFuel Solid non-transparent coolants are all based on a new patent-pending formula with vivid, long-lasting color stability. The coolant contains everything a high-end liquid cooling system requires for efficient thermal performance and providing the necessary protection for your water blocks. It carries the essential synergistic corrosion inhibitors and biological inhibitors - thus promoting long and safe operational life for your liquid cooling products and high thermal efficiency.
It's Solid, it will not break down! The main issue with non-transparent coolants is color pigment particle separation and sedimenting. Our mission was to deliver the most chemically stable non-transparent coolant that would provide enthusiasts and PC gamers with the best possible level of performance and thermal efficiency with the emphasis on color stability. With that in mind, EK-CryoFuel Solid was engineered specifically for the computer liquid cooling systems.
EK-CryoFuel Solid is a pure, non-toxic coolant, based on the patent-pending chemical formula, which prevents the creation of any sediments in the liquid cooling loop. Liquid cooling users can rest assured that the Solid non-transparent coolant has very a low viscosity, it will not clog or damage their water blocks and other parts of the loop.

EK-CryoFuel Solid also contains synergistic corrosion inhibitors to protect metals commonly found in computer liquid cooling systems. It has been tested in accordance with BS5117 (ASTM D1384) and found to meet corrosion standards for copper, brass, and stainless steel. This coolant also contains biocides to help prevent unwanted biological growth inside your cooling loop.

All EK-CryoFuel Solid mixtures are biodegradable (90% in a period of 10 days) and will not remain in the environment or cause any bioaccumulation. EK-CryoFuel Solid offers a 1-year shelf life from date of bottling, the production date can be seen on the packing bottle of the coolant.
The EK-CryoFuel Solid coolants are not compatible with aluminum-based liquid cooling loops and EK advises that they are not used with any of the EK Fluid Gaming lineup of products.

EK-CryoFuel Solid coolants are made in Slovenia, Europe, and are available for pre-order through EK Webshop and Partner Reseller Network. All pre-orders will start shipping on Monday, the 15th of October, 2018! In the table below you can see the manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) with VAT included.

Well... there it is.
I was told they ran these through loops for a lot of time, possibly over a whole year just to check for clogging.

Solid coolant? So how the heck does it move around the pipes?

Meaning stable formula I suppose

Wow, stable, non-corrosive, AND environmentally safe too, and for 15euro no less....

Seems like someone is thinkin outside da box for sure :D

Now why can't this be done for automotive coolant on a similar process ? I know it would take some additional engineering to pull off because of the much higher temperature demands and other considerations, but it would definitely be a step in the right direction, for everyone ......

Why on earth do they call their cooling liquid "solid"? That's the dumbest name they could possibly come up with.

I think the word "solid" is linked to the colour, rather than the fluid itself. "solid colour" as in "uniform colour", or "stable over time colour". For me it doesn't sound that bad.

Probably they meant that, but that doesn't change the fact that it's not the best name for a LIQUID! :rolleyes:

-40F to 250F chemically stable coolant..... It's tough to do.

OAT PG coolant is not toxic, and has 20% better thermal conduction than old glycol coolant, so I would say we are there, just need a few more adjustments by mfgs for gasket and seals.

Most colored coolants are a suspension whereby colored nano particles can settle out.

"Solid" is in reference to the opaqueness of the fluid. Because you can't see through it, it gives the appearance that it is solid.

TY for that definition !
..I thought I recognized it from a chemical mfg plant rehab project I worked on a few years ago....and I was right :)
