List of dyeable plastics

Postby whridlsoncestood » Wed Jun 10, 2009 7:43 pm

Trying to use the search to find out about DX plastic and if it takes. Was a hard search but it seems like its not easy. Just thought it would be nice to compile a list based on peoples experience and sticky it. So list what you have been able to dye and what hasn't taken.

For me Innova Star and champion plastics have worked as most people alreay know.

As people post I will edit this and make a nice clean list of good and bad plastics to dye.

i did it on pro but it fades and does not keep sharp lines. I have done a dye on elite X and elite Z that worked well. i mainly just stick to star and champ though.

did you check the disc artwork tutorials at the top of the section? i think they have a list up there

but from what i can remember i thin dx/pro-d (old school type plastics) do not accept die very well....if at all...

champ/z is the best from what i've seen
and esp/star is a close second
pro/elite-x is passable

Is there any difference in dyeability between Elite z and Crystal plastics?
