E6000 Pink Stain?

Recommended Posts

So I've been re-doing some of my snap plates.  My snap plates are made from just regular strap material with Dot fasteners.  I installed them with E6000 and I noticed when I removed them, that it's left a pink/salmon color stain on the inside of my armor.  Not sure what's causing that.  Anyone else experience this?  I'm just afraid that stain will show through eventually to the outside of my armor.

I've not seen the pink before but I've encountered black from nylon bleaching through, must be the glued reacting to the dye.

 

You could try to some cutting compound (polish) and see if it helps.

 

Not sure how far it will leach through.

So I've come to the conclusion that the stain is coming from the type of strap I used.  So for any doing snap plates like this, use ONLY the nylon ones.  This other one I used had more of a plasticky feel and had more of a sheen to it versus the nylon material.  You can see the difference in the pic.  The one on the right is NOT the one you want to use.  Even when I was using my solder iron to make the hole, the material became very gooey.  Stick to the nylon!
