Acteone vapors and Ultimaker PLA ( white )

Recommended Posts

Hey,

I just accidentally threw some white Ultimaker PLA part into acetone, thinking nothing should happen, but behold, it actually smoothed it somewhat! It stuck lightly to the ground of the container when I took it out as well.

I was under the impression that acteone should not have any effect on it. Is it maybe the coloring of the filament?

The part on the left is untreated, the right one was in acteone,

Side by side acteone

In the second picture you can see the treated part from the other side, that wasn't completly submerged in acteone. You can see a faint line between the top part and the base. It also seems to discolor it slighty into the yellowish.

Really strange, anybody know whats going on?
