How robust is the coloring of SLS printed material? Should I be worried about abrasion making white shine through?

I am designing a mechanical part, a clamp.

The dye should be fairly absorbed into the part. I'll see if I can get a more definitive answer.

Just found an article, detailing the process used by Shapeways: Dyeing White, Strong & Flexible

Very interesting!
