Bright Dyes FWT Red products are specially formulated versions of Rhodamine WT dye for convenient use in water tracing and leak detection studies. This bright, fluorescent red dye is certified by NSF International to ANSI/NSF Standard 60 for use in drinking water. It may be detected visually, by ultraviolet light and by appropriate fluorometric equipment. Today it is most often used visually. Visually the dye appears bright pink to red, depending on its concentration and under ultraviolet light as bright orange.

Fluorescent Red Rhodamine WT Dye

The dye is resistant to absorption on most suspended mater in fresh and salt water.

Compared to Bright Dyes FLT Yellow/Green products it is significantly more resistant to degradation by sunlight and when used in fluorometry, stands out much more clearly against background fluorescence. As always the use and suitability of these products for any specific application should be evaluated by a qualified hydrologist or other industry professional.
