patch in darkness/red light?
    #2356932 - 02/19/04 10:49 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

should I worry about exposing the casing to too much light when checking for colonization and when patching over it?

I've heard that even slight exposure to light will induce pinning. Also I've heard that it's safe to inspect the casing in red light, as it doesn't induce pinning. How safe is red light, and what kind of source would you recommend for it, just any red party bulb?

Certain lights initiate pinning best (those with certain wavelengths of xxx nanometers), but they are mostly blue I think. Blue's wavelength is considerably smaller than red's, so I think red should be OK for looking at your cakes w/o accidentally inducing pinning.

Also, studies showed that I think fractions of milliseconds of light per day can induce pinning, so who knows.

I wouldn't worry about it if it's still colonizing, you'll just be looking at it for a few moments.
