nature of third gel.[edit]

one article in the Dutch gaming magazine power unlimited (issue 207) states that the third gel is white, and is used to make parts of black, portal-blocking walls into white, portal-enabled walls. No screenshots of the gel in action were provided though. 18:06, February 19, 2011 (UTC)

New Gel Image, featuring Green Gel[edit]

Valve released a presentation featuring some technical infos on Portal 2. Its about Water, the new Emancipation Grid and also shows a green Gel [1]. Maybe this is the Conversion Gel? Or maybe even a 4th Gel? Captain943 17:25, April 14, 2011 (UTC)

Painted Walls[edit]

The article says, that all further walls in the testing areas were painted with the gel, however why would they paint office spaces and corridors with it too, considering it must be fairly expensive? Shouldn't that be changed?

  • You can visibly see through the older areas of Portal 2 that walls well outside the testing areas were in the midst of being painted over in Conversion Gel without having been finished. It's very likely that, not expecting anyone to have the Quantum Tunneling Device outside testing areas, it would make a decent paint anywhere. This was also before it was discovered to be poisonous, after which it is no longer painted anywhere until GLaDOS takes over. --Witoki 16:46, April 26, 2011 (UTC)
  • I disagree. They said that Conversion Gel was a "great portal conductor", not the only one. Smooth cement works just as well - you see that in the maintenance areas in both games, specifically in Portal 2 when placing portals on a cement platform where tiles have been knocked out. The sentence suggesting everything got painted over is, I believe, unfounded. E gal 16:12, May 10, 2011 (UTC)
  • But is it bare concrete? It appears to be white and painted over, in both games. Witoki 16:18, May 10, 2011 (UTC)
  • I'd assumed so. Although I'll give that is at least whitewashed in some areas. (though these areas were vitrified in 1961, and conversion gel wasn't created until the late 1970's, at the earliest.) Also, there's no reason anyone would paint these areas: [2] [3] E gal 00:56, May 11, 2011 (UTC)
