    A New Blue...

    A neat discovery (my background is in Materials Science so I kind of like these sorts of discoveries) -

    The Story of YlnMn Blue | Department of Chemistry | Oregon State University

    But they fail to mention a huge market for this new blue - blue plaster and PVC liner colorants!!

    Interesting... I've gotten to where I steer anyone and everyone from blue plaster and pebble finishes. I've yet to see a pool with a decent looking blue plaster finish after any length of time.

    Probably the biggest downfall is that this discovery is a year and a half too late for me.

    I'll take a large polo shirt, something decent in a nice high-tech fabric with no logos, thanks
