    Hi all,

    We've had a Colorado for around 6 months now & when we first got the machine, it was amazing. I couldn't fault it!

    However, in the past 2/3 months, we've been having issues with our media cracking & splitting upon application (mainly external application to glass windows).

    I've tweaked the internal machine temperature & the curing lamp intensity, but the issue still persists.

    If anyone has any information that could shine some light on why this issue is occurring, I'd be very appreciative!

    We just had one installed. They told us upfront that brittle media is an issue. I have someone coming by to attempt a work around for it. I'll let you know if I have any success.

    Yes, we've also had people come to try help but we've had no luck. Hopefully, you'll get further!
    Thanks :)

    Well this is comforting... We are installing a Colorado next week. Hopefully they figure out the issue.

    If they're all certified medias that you plan on using you might not have any issues.
    However, some of the products we use aren't 'approved medias'.
    It's just a bit frustrating to have to be limited to an approved list. :(

    Thank you Jim, although I'm aware of these pre profiled media's. We still have splitting with some of these medias too! :(
    I think it may be just our machine (hopefully for the sake of anyone else who has a Colorado!)
