Engine ice turned purple?

Did a coolant flush in march of this year with engine ice. It was blue at that time and up untill now changed to purple.

Anyone else have blue engine ice turn purple on them over time?

The only thing I can think of, if there was some old green coolant was still in the system somewhere, and now mixed the blue and made it purple,

It says on their website that their coloring agent is very sensitive and can appear to be blue or purple but all the same product.

They also say that the color can change over time and that it's nothing to worry about. I hope that is the case for you.
