Ate Superblue Is Illegal?!

Just tried to buy some superblue from BLUNT and he informed me he can't sell it because as of last week it's illegal.

Apparently all brake fluid has to be either clear or gold...and apparently the government just figured out that superblue is actually blue in color.

If you can get your hands on some, snatch it up quick!

It's lost it's DOT approval.  That' different than 'illegal'.  Means you'll have to buy it from other sources, is all.

 

What makes some sense is that the silicone fluid is blue- so the blue color could confuse idiots into mixing

silicone and non- silicone.

i had understood that ATE Blue never had DOT approval...because of the blue dye.

 

don't think anything has changed.   not really an issue if it did anyway, ATE type200 is the exact same stuff without the blue dye and is DOT approved.  the blue is just handy for seeing color change for fluid flushing and is easier to track down a leak becuase of the color difference from engine oil and trans oil.
