Why is my FEP film so unclear? Should I change it?

1 Answer

  1. It is easily scratched by cleaning. Use soft tissue to soak resin when cleaning up the vat, do not aggressively wipe the film as even tissue will scratch it. These micro scratches cause the film to go cloudy. Buffing the film with microfibre cloth will restore some clarity. It is important that the film is kept clear to ensure sharp and detailed prints.
    FEP film needs to be replaced only when it becomes too scratched up or cloudy from use. If it is not replaced your print quality will decline. Replace immediately if it is punctured or torn. If you notice cured resin on your LCD glass, it means the film may have a micro tear.
