diluent - a solid or liquid chemical used to dilute another Sodium sulfate is a common diluent for dry dyes.

Since the manufacturing of dyes does not always result in exactly the same strength of dye from batch to batch, manufactures routinely add a diluent to adjust the batch to a standardized strength. Diluents may make up a large portion of dyes designed to yield pale shades. For example, a dye that yields dark red at 2% o.w.g. may be diluted to yield a pale pink using 2% o.w.g. of the diluted dye. Diluting dry dyes in the way is done primarily as a convenience to the dyer.
