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,
