In our general understanding, plastic materials are synonymous with cheap, but different materials have their material properties, and customers' requirements for products and other reasons determine what materials and processes to use.
Today we will explain the aspects of plastic numbers in life by the materials of plastic numbers, the manufacturing process of plastic numbers, and the use of plastic numbers.
Plastic number material
1、ABS plastic house number, material ABS
engineering plastic has excellent comprehensive performance, has strong impact
strength, good dimensional stability, electrical properties, wear resistance,
chemical resistance, dyeing performance, molding and mechanical processing is
better. Therefore, the plastic numbers that we see on the surface of the
plating are all made of ABS plastic materials. The color of the raw materials
of ABS is like milk yellow. The surface pressed by the mold is smooth, and the
effect is good after plating. ABS plastics are widely used in shower heads and
general mechanical parts.
2、PA polyamide, commonly known as nylon, PA has the characteristics of toughness, firmness, wear resistance, non-toxicity, etc. So it is commonly used in making combs, toothbrushes, coat hooks, fan bones, net bag ropes, bathroom accessories, etc.
3、PC is the abbreviation of polycarbonate, also called PC engineering plastics. PC material is actually one of the so-called engineering plastics. It is one of the widely used materials because polycarbonate is colorless, transparent, heat resistant and impact resistant. , Flame retardant, has good mechanical properties in ordinary use temperature, so daily applications have CDs, spectacle lenses, water bottles, bulletproof glass, goggles, headlights, animal cages, pet cages and other common items in life.
4、PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is mostly used to
make some cheap artificial leather, foot pads, sewer pipes, etc.; because of
its good electrical properties and certain flame retardant characteristics, it
is widely used in the manufacture of wire and cable jackets. In addition, PVC
is widely used in the industrial field, especially in places with high
requirements on acid and alkali corrosion resistance.
5、PP (polypropylene) is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic. It has high impact resistance, strong mechanical properties, and resistance to multiple organic solvents and acid-base corrosion. Everyday products are mostly used for packaging, toys, washbasins, hangers, drinking glasses, etc.; they are also widely used in industry and are one of the common polymer plastic materials.
The above are the types of plastics that are commonly used in daily life, as well as the plastics used in plastic numbers. The various types of plastics are related to the performance of plastics.Production process of plastic number
Regarding the production process of plastic number, there are die casting, or PVC plastic plate wire cutting and other processes. First open a die-casting mold, and then use an injection molding machine to process the plastic to die-cast the product. This is the most common production method in volume production. The advantages are fast shipment, low cost, multiple colors, and electroplating on the surface. The disadvantage is the personalized customization due to the limitations of the mold. It is used more in house numbers.
The use of PVC plastic board wire cutting
technology to produce plastic numbers, the advantage is that it can be
customized, one can also, the surface can be painted and other colors are
diverse, the disadvantage is that the cost will be high. There are not many
applications in advertising billboards.
The use of plastic numbers
The plastic number is made of ABS plastic injection molding, the surface is electroplated, and it is also water-plated nickel-plated. The electroplating level is automobile electroplating level, like a mirror surface, and the reflective effect is extremely strong. Good sense, good sense of space, good visual perception! It seems that the high-end atmosphere is of great grade, and it is an ideal choice for star hotels, high-end residential house numbers.
