Silicone plastic is the main component. There are many kinds of silicone plastic for different fields of industrial product. Silica gel contains organic silica gel and inorganic silica gel. Silicone plastic is one of organic silica gel. Temperature resistance, weatherability, Electrical insulation performance, Physiological inertia, Low surface tension and low surface energy are the outstanding characteristics of organic silica gel. The one we use to make wristband is named Polysiloxanes di-Me Me vinyl vinyl group-terminated chemically. We add curing agent to the soft original silicone plastic and mix them evenly, then put it to molding machine with high temperature of about 200℃, a few seconds later the silicone plastic gets solidified. Here comes the silicone wristband with custom logo by mould. Characteristic of the silicone plastic stay samcustom braceletse on the process. All of our products are made from 100% high quality silicone plastic, eco-friendly, comfortable to wear and durable.
mall and simple item, but it is not so easy to make. Let’s learn about how to make a silicone bracelet.
There are 8 steps to make a rubber bracelet.
1st Design the artwork.
An artwork includes the information of order number, size, logo style, order quantity and other options like glowing and individual pack. The most importantly it shows what the bracelet looks like with your message or logo. It is direct way to check if wording, colors of bracelet and logo are correct. We are willing to make several mock-ups for your reference. The software for designing is CDR, so eps. or ai. file is appreciated for your logo. And there are variety of fonts for your choice. If the artwork get confirmed, we will proceed with it.
2nd Make the mould or film.
A mould is needed for debossed, embossed, colorfilled styles. We make a mould and set it in the machine, the high temperature of about 200℃ will solidify rubber into the sharp of bracelet. A mould is made from copper.
A film is functioned like a mould but it is for printed wristband only. It transfer the ink to the surface of bracelet as logo and wording.
3rd Prepare the rubber material.
A rubber bracelet is mainly made from silicone rubber, and some other accessories like curing agent which solidify the soft rubber, and Color masterbatch which makes bracelet colored.
We will mix these material evenly in a blender. It comes out a ball of rubber. We need to measure it into blocks of almost same weight which as much as the weight of a wristband. Normal size of 202*12mm bracelet is weighted about 6g.
4th Produce bracelets by the mould.
As we mentioned before in 2nd and 3rd step, we will transfer the blocks to bracelets by a set of moulding machine of high temperature. When it cool down, it gets the characteristic of a bracelet, smooth and strengthened.
5th Edge cutting.
A semi-product of rubber bracelet has rough edges, we have to cut it off. The rough edge is cut by machine. It will be good.
6th Color the logo and wording
The bracelet comes out from moulding machine without colors on the logo and lettering. We have to fill the ink or print the ink on the bracelet. Different style has different way of printing.
7th Clean the product
As the bracelet has static electricity, dust will be on the surface and hard to move off. So we need to clean the bracelet before packing. We usually wash it with water once.
After washing, we will check the quality.
8tcustom braceletsh Packing and delivery
We count the quantity by weighting. Normally packing will be 100pcs/bag, and 2500pcs/ctn. Individual packing is available. It is good to go now.
custom-baseball-wristbandshow-many-wristbands-in-forza-horizon arious custom wristbands to identify people or express some themes. Our common silicone wristbands are usually single color, such as red, yellow, blue, green, yellow, purple and so on. Actually, we can also integrate different colors on one wristband to achieve a different visual effect. For such multicolored wristbands, we called them Segmented wristbands or Swirled wristbands. So how can you tell the difference between these two polychromatic wristbands? Let’s find out today.
To arrange two or three or more colors on one wristband, each color has a well-proportioned color distribution, one by one, doesn’t mix together. We called this kind of multicolor silicone wristbands as segmented wristbands.
To mix two or three or more colors together, not be arranged one by one, the color distribution is in a swirling state, mixing with no regularity. This kind of color wristbands was called as swirled color wristbands.
No matter Segmented wristbands or Swirled wristbands, they have the same production process, that’s overmoding process. But sometimes, there also are a little different in some details between them. Let’s see.
The same point
We know the production process of silicone wristbands are basically the same, after putting the raw materials into the mold, the silicone wristbands will be formed in the mold under the liquefaction of high temperature. Mold temperature is generally maintained at about 200 degrees (depending on the original material characteristics), so as to ensure that the material is well formed and not damaged.Therefore, almost all silicone wristbands has the characteristics of high temperature resistance. One set of molds can produce a variety of silicone wristbands, as long as the design is the same, color selection will not affect the mold production.
The different point
The difference between the two lies in the ingredients.
The segmented wristband is an independent color scheme for raw material, and then the prepared raw materials of different colors are put into the mold one by one, waiting for heating and shaping, so that the colors of the products are arranged in a regular manner, appeared segmented status.
The Swirled wristband is prepared by adding needed toner to the raw material for color matching in accordance with the proportion required,then mixed the toner into raw material well. After the toner is completely integrated into the raw material, then put the well-prepared material into the mold for molding which makes the color of the product irregular and swirling.
Uses for the two
Segmented and swirled colors are two interesting design methods, both the color of segmented and swirled can create the unique appearance, sometimes gorgeous as rainbow, also spectacular as colorful sunrise. For school, sports meeting, exhibition, a dynamic band and other large-scale events can choose these two unique colorful wristbands to create different visual feeling.
