Hurricane Florence Alert:
A rather large hurricane is set to hit the East Coast of the United States at the end of this week. Because of its size and threat to life & property there have already been significant evacuations in the areas expected to be hit worst. Hopefully things do not turn out as bad, but we will probably see shipping delays to and from that area (our North America distribution center is in Memphis, TN, close to the area).
If you are in the US region and you order something during this period, please see check for possible alerts.

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?
