Yellow/Cloudy PVA

Recommended Posts

The PVA we have always received up to now, or that has come with the machines, has always had a slight yellow tint but been quite transparent.

Upon opening a new sealed roll this morning the PVA was a dark yellow and very brittle, is this normal?

(I haven't tried printing with it yet, its a 3 day print that needs to work so I found another roll we had that looks normal)

Hi,

I have contacted them, waiting on a response from them. It was an Ultimaker spool and it was a 350g one. I have just discovered that we actually have two in this condition. Thanks,

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
