Two Zimmerman Colors

Curious if anyone here has a recollection of using Zimmerman's 831 red opaque or 89 lemon yellow opaque. I found two old sections of bar covered in dust at the bottom of a box and curious mostly about their density and quality of color once blown out. Zimmerman's colors always seemed to look great in bar form from the ones I'd seen but I don't think I ever worked with many besides white and their canary yellow and that was like 18 years ago.

I used 831 as a lip wrap all the time, it stood up well to reheating in that application. The few times I blew it out it tended to have small bubbles. As soon as Gaffer came out with reds I switched.

I used to use the lemon. It doesn’t jump out in my memory as a fantastic magic color. (Lip wraps)

89, if memory serves, is the light lemon yellow. I don't recall any problems with it except for it being too bland for the work I was doing.
