It seriously damaged their reputation, not just because of the issue, but also the way in which they handled it,
the outcome was basically that they approve a list of coolants to use,
plain distilled water with Pt or silver is out, you must use an approved coolant.
I don't like being told what I can and can't use :P
I could work through and forgive the plating issue, we all have problems now and again, but the way in which they dealt with the matter made sure I'll never buy EK Nickel, and like most on here strongly advise against it, even this far on
