China Plastic Cap Manufacturers Choose Durable Materials

  • Different materials also have different properties in the production of Pet Preform, which can play a role in material selection. These include:
    Melting temperature: The temperature required to change the solid resin particles into a molten liquid for injection.
    Viscosity: This property is related to how the material flows through the mold – the more viscous the material, the thicker the liquid.
    Melting characteristics: Different types of resins melt in different ways. Molecularly, resins fall into two categories: amorphous and semi-crystalline. The significance of this distinction is that the amorphous resin gradually melts as the temperature rises above a certain melting point, and the semi-crystalline resin completely melts once it reaches a certain melting point. This difference can play an important role in production, which we will discuss later.
    While the above list provides an understanding of the types of material properties a resin may have, let's take a look at some of the questions they can provide.
    What type of parts are being manufactured? “Part type” can cover many qualities, for example: Is it a consumer-oriented or a component that is primarily used as another product? Is its appearance important? Which industry is it used in? What is the size of the part – is it a large part or a small part?
    Material selection is all these and more key considerations. For example, for consumer parts, a material that is easy to dye, paint, or surface finish may be more popular if aesthetics is important. For aerospace components, temperature resistance may be a priority.
    How complicated is production? Similarly, production complexity can involve several factors: Is your part complex itself complicated by complex molds? Will your parts be overmolded? Will you use a variety of materials? When you consider these issues, think about the following qualities discussed above:
    Viscosity: For complex parts, a lower viscosity may be preferred so that the material can flow more easily through the mold and fill the entire cavity.
    Melting temperature: Lower melting temperatures may also be useful for more complex parts, ensuring that the material remains liquid for long periods of time as it flows into the mold cavity.
    Melting characteristics: If a variety of materials are mixed in production, melting characteristics are a key issue and should be considered along with the material's production and end use characteristics. If the amorphous and semi-crystalline resins are mixed, they will not melt uniformly, so it is impossible to properly fill the mold.
    Material Interaction: For overmolded parts, make sure your material does not cause any adverse chemical reactions to the resin-formed material.
    What is the intended use of the part? Will your parts be used in high-impact applications? Ensure that the hardness and flexibility of the material are taken into account, confirming the proper strength without the risk of breakage or breakage. Harsh environments, such as aerospace (as described above), and underwater, and even in the aerospace industry, also have significant material effects—temperature adaptability, UV resistance, chemical interactions, and resistance. Of course, more traditional uses, such as children's toys, may also be considered a "bad environment."
    Therefore, the materials chosen by China Plastic Cap Manufacturers for these applications should be more resistant to breakage and damage.
