Risk Reactor IFWB-14 Blue non-fluorescent water based tracer is specially formulated version of food grade dye FD & C Blue. IFWB-14 Blue has been certified to the ANSI Standard 60 for use in drinking water. This dye is used for visual detection only and cannot be seen under ultraviolet light or detected by fluorometry. For these please see IFWB-C8, IFWB-C7, and IFWB-33. However, when used visually, its color is often thought to be more acceptable to public view than the fluorescing red or yellow green. In this respect, it is sometimes used in fountains, ponds and streams for decorative effect. Visually, the dye appears as aqua to royal blue depending on its concentration and activity of the water.
