Tracerline® Fluoro-Lite® 5 UV Fluorescent Leak Detection Dye: The Most Advanced OEM-Grade Dye Formula for Automotive Professional Service

2019-01-15 13:10:26

Tracer Products announces the release of FLUORO-LITE® 5 – the brightest, most advanced fluorescent leak detection dye formula in the world. As the inventors of fluorescent leak detection, Tracer Products’ has been at the forefront of leak detection technology for over sixty years. This is the first time in over twenty-plus years that Tracer Products is releasing a completely new dye formulation.

FLUORO-LITE® 5 is brighter than the previous dye formula and provides the industry’s most optimal fluorescent response – far exceeding the performance and quality of comparable dye products. It has a greater resistance to extreme temperature ranges and moisture. This means the new dye formula has a much longer shelf-life. In addition, the dye performs better under stressful conditions and has greater stability. All of these qualities make FLUORO-LITE® 5 an excellent tool for long-term preventative maintenance and leak detection. FLUORO-LITE® 5 dye is also co-solvent free and manufactured using OEM-Grade materials, so it can be safely added to the vehicle system and it won’t affect chemical properties or change how the equipment works. This means the dye can remain indefinitely within the system for ongoing 24/7 leak detection. FLUORO-LITE® 5 dye is co-solvent free and manufactured using OEM-Grade materials. 

FLUORO-LITE® 5 dye can remain indefinitely within the vehicle system. Once a repair is made, the dye can be used as part of a preventative maintenance program. Every time a customer comes back to have their vehicle serviced, all a technician must do is scan the vehicle system with a leak detection lamp. If there are new leaks in the system, the fluorescent dye will glow brilliantly and indicate the exact location of all new leaks. FLUORO-LITE® 5 dye can find the smallest and most problematic leaks that would otherwise be impossible to detect.

Pairing with the new FLUORO-LITE® 5 dye formulation are two new and improved violet light LED leak detection lamps: the OPTI-PRO™ UV and the OPTI-PRO™ UV PLUS. These lamps provide optimal fluorescent dye response and contrast when scanning for hard-to-find leaks. Their compact design allows a technician to scan in cramped areas – and each lamp also has an adjustable lens that can cater to any inspection situation.

After more than five years of R&D, the new Tracerline product portfolio featuring FLUORO-LITE® 5 will be available to ship starting Jan 1, 2019. Over 250 million vehicles have used Tracerline’s UV fluorescent leak detection dyes to ensure quality and system integrity.
