The product will successfully gauge water content in all petroleum and hydrocarbons as well as sulphuric acid, nitric acid, hydrochloric acid, ammoni, soap solutions, salt and other chloride solutions.

This version of Kolor Kut comes packaged in 3oz tubes.

Directions for use: Place a thin film on a clean gauge line or rod to the approxiamate point where water level is expected to appear. Lower the tape into the tank until the bottom is reached. The level will appear by positive contrast of colours. It is instantaneous in petrol, diesel, kerosene and gas oils. Heavy oils may require a few seconds for the paste to adjust.

Pictured below is the Kolor Kut for Bio Diesel, also known in the trade as Kolor Kut: Modified

Kolor Kut: Modified changes from Dark Brown to Bright Red on contact with water but also can change to Yellow with Phase seperated alchohol solutions with as little as 6% water.

Kolor Kut Modified comes in 2.5oz tubes. Directions for use are pretty much the same as before.
