Bleaching Colors

Post by Roberts_Clif » September 9th, 2018, 2:16 pm

Today noticed that the Soap Disk that was 3D Printed with Pink PLA sitting on the Fiberglass Shower seat.
Has left a large dark stain the exact size of the bottom of the Soap disk. So I guess PLA color will bleach to certain types of surface materials.

Today I an asking everyone is they know what will remove the soap disk sized stain from the fiberglass shower insert.

Also!!!
Would like everyone to know that it should be noted to everyone who is printing with PLA that color bleaching is a high possibility.

I never heard of it either or I would have never allowed it to be on the Fiberglass Shower Insert.
It sat on the porcelain bathroom sink basin for almost a year no stains their.
