White T-molding turning yellow!?
« on: August 04, 2018, 05:50:59 am »
Has anyone else experienced this?
I bought some white T-Molding (from t-molding.com) some time back, and its been sitting in my basement ever since. I peeked into the bag today as I'll be using it soon.
The t-molding that was the most exposed has turned yellowish, white the stuff that was at the bottom of the bag is still white as snow.

Totally normal. Lots of the white plastics (including buttons) turn brittle and yellow with time. For sure. Was it exposed to light? You said it was in your basement...

Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats.

Yes but never direct sunlight. How unfortunate that the quality us so bad - I'm seriously thinking about ditching my black and white colour scheme :S

- a year or so, maybe a little more. I just didnt thing that soft plastic like that deteriorated that fast. White conduit pipe (hard plastic) and stuff smilar to that should never be exposed to direct sunlight...but this! -I did not see this coming :S
