The raw material of polyresin products is synthetic resin, and the mold is made of silicone. The mold cost is relatively cheap and can be produced in small quantities. Because the material of the silicone mold is very soft, the design development space is quite large. The resin material is close to ceramics. High hardness and weight, it can imitate a variety of different surface textures, but the disadvantage is that it is fragile and easy to break, so it is not suitable for too small line design, suitable for static decoration items. The tourist souvenir refrigerator magnet made of polyresin can be made into a three-dimensional effect through the advantages of good plasticity of resin material. Through the purely hand-painted coloring, the design colors of different requirements can be restored. The magnets used in accessories can choose black magnet, strong magnet and soft magnet.
The mold must be made before mass production. The mold of the resin product is made of soft silicone, which is not only low in cost, but also offering short production time.
Resin crafts present very well in reduction in details. The soft silicone mold is molded by the master mold, and it seamlessly surrounds the master mold during the curing process; while the production process of the resin crafts embryo body is cured by grouting, which happens to be the reverse process, so it can highly restore the master mold’s details.
If you want to customize glass and ceramic handicrafts, they will provide you with a minimum order quantity of at least 3000pcs or more than 5000pcs. But sometimes customer’s demand quantity is not that much, it will be a problem for you. In contrast, the MOQ for polyresin crafts is much smaller, such as MOQ for a small-size refrigerator magnet is 1,000pcs.
VARIOUS SURFACE EFFECTS
The surface of the polyresin crafts can be painted, spray painted… and other effects, it can imitate a variety of surface effects, and is a highly simulated material. For materials such as plastic, metal, glass, and PVC, the surface effect is not as changeable as polyresin. Of course, the advantages of resin crafts are far more than these, it also has the advantages of high temperature resistance and long storage time. But it also has some shortcomings, such as has larger tolerance in size and color caused by hand-made, and the product is fragile…etc. But generally speaking, the advantages of resin crafts outweigh its disadvantages. If you want to make craft products, resin materials are indispensable.
For standard 2D or half 3D design products, Please provide design and size. It can be a photo, picture, hand-drawing in JPG or AI. File. We will paint the colors as the design or you can provide PANTONE color number. In order to get more details, please provide the scenery’s name, so we can surf on internet to get more photos for reference.
After having your approval on the clay mold, we will make white polyresin body. During the process, the clay mold will be destroyed. So you cannot ask for revising design and shape anymore. We will color the white body and send you photos from different angles for your approval. You may revise any colors, but not the design and shape.
After having your approval on final colored sample, the sample process is done. We send you 2 finished samples by your courier account. With the approved color sample, we can start mass production.
For cubic 3D products, we will need you to offer physical sample or 3D printing sample for replicate the design, but the replicate sample will have smaller size from original every time, so we will enlarge the mold in bigger size to make it close to original a little bit. Please kindly aware, the shrinkage will happen in every replicated process, so if the molds are replicate more times, the product size will be smaller a little bit every time.
if you need us to make 3D printing mold sample, please kindly offer file in ZTL or OBJ format, we can print it directly. If you do not have 3D printing file, we can also offer this service, please contact us for more details.
