Need reco for light purple

I need a purple in rod form that's a very light tint. All the purples by Gaffer are too dense for this application.

Anyone have a reco for a Kugler or Reich they like? Or someone who makes color have some? thx

R-12 or R-13 for a reddish purple, R-14 for a bluish purple. Not sure what your application is but those are the ones that I like.

R-13 gets my vote. I use it a lot. I was just noticing today that there is a great void in the glass color palette for nice light purples in opaque.

I've had some luck with K-056. I did have some problems with bubbles in the rod, but not a big deal. I don't use Kugler much, but was looking for just what you're talking about.
