bamboo fun pen + alcohol = melted?

Postby DoktorBeta » Wed 8. Mar 2017, 19:05

I sprayed my Bamboo Fun pen with isopropyl alcohol to sanitize it, because I've been sick. I accidentally left the pen in the pen-holder after doing this, and the alcohol didn't dry off. Now the part of the pen's outer coating that was touching the plastic of the pen-holder appears to have melted off:

The nib-side of the pen doesn't work anymore, even though the eraser end works perfectly fine. Even after replacing the nib, it doesn't work. Is there a possibility that I have permanently damaged the internal parts of the pen?
