There are several printing methods that are suitable for printing on acrylic displays. They are Laser engraving, Silk printing, UV printing, Painting spraying, and Thermal pad printing.

What’s the printing effect of each method?

What are the differences between them?

1. Laser engraving:

Also called Micro-carving & laser marking, is scanned by a laser. The characteristics are: the unevenness of the plate makes the logo permanent, and the color is frosted and transparent after micro-engraving, but it can also be put on a simple color to make the logo more obvious.

2. Silk printing:

Under the pressure of the screening brush, the ink passes through the screen, so that the same pattern is printed on the surface of the acrylic. Its operation is simple, fast and cheap. Common in scenarios such as printing LOGOs. The disadvantage is we can only print one color each time.

3. UV printing

A printing method in which ink is cured by ultraviolet rays. It does not change color and is scratch resistant. However, the acrylic plate cannot be bent after printing and is often used on things that do not require high product precision, such as some acrylic billboards and acrylic wine labels.

4. Painting spraying

Also called Digital printing: the technology of spraying a layer of oil film on the acrylic plate and printing against. It has very high precision. the acrylic plate can be bent at will, but it is easy to scratch and does not resist high temperatures. It is common on some acrylic billboards.

5. Thermal pad printing

Hotpress transfer printing, short for hot pad printing, commonly known as hot stamping, hot silver. It is a method of stamping metal foil onto printed matter by means of certain pressure and temperature, and there is also a cold pad printing.

Can cooperate with convex or concave process effect will be better; Besides gold and silver, there are also color gold, laser light, spot color and so on.

2) Use higher bonding strength glue to make the display stand stronger, although this kind of glue is slow-drying.

3) For larger dimensions products, it is necessary to increase the thickness of the load-bearing plate to avoid deformation due to large bearing capacity.

4) When bonding, assembling and fixing the plexiglass display stand, it is necessary to pay attention to reserve a certain shrinkage and expansion gap to prevent the impact of thermal expansion and contraction on the display stand.

3 factors that affect the service life of acrylic fabrications

The service life of acrylic fabrications is the most important concern for customers in addition to price-quality before purchase. There are three aspects that affect service life: material, environment, and usage.

01 Raw material

acrylic fabrications

The material is the basis, the quality of the material directly affects the service life, domestic, imported, new materials and recycled materials. These are some common classifications of the plates. From the performance point of view, the imports are better than the domestic ones, and the new materials are better than the return materials. If the price is not a problem for you, use good materials and maintain properly, then there is no problem in using 5-6 years or even 10 years (within the house).

02 Environment

acrylic fabrications

Acrylic fabrications also have requirements for the use of the environment, such as indoors or outdoors, and different temperatures. When the temperature reaches 96° or above, it will be thermally deformed, and below 9.2°, it will be easily catalyzed. The outdoor sun and rain environment will also increase service life. Therefore, acrylic (plexiglass) should not be used in harsh environments. Other materials may be considered if there are special needs.

03 Way of use

acrylic fabrications

Improper use can also seriously shorten the service life of acrylic (plexiglass). For example, if a product with more than its load is placed on an acrylic display stand, the display frame will be deformed or even broken due to unbearable load.

To extend the service life of acrylic products, regular maintenance and cleaning are required. Otherwise, there is no way to ensure long-term use.

If there is a thing gladden the heart and please the eye in the world, it must be various light boxes made from acrylic products on the street.

When we talk about the colorful light boxes, we will have to talk about its raw material–acrylic.

Glass is one of the first things that we come into connection with and it seems that transparent products are generally made of glass.

We have never thought that acrylic products will eliminate glass. Maybe the reason is that the acrylic product is an updated version to avoid the disadvantages of glass. Why does acrylic products become popular? Here we will show you the main reasons why acrylic can be a replacement for glass.

High transparency

The light transmittance of acrylic is more than 92% while the ordinary glass is only 85%. Even the dyed acrylic reflects glitteringly and translucently in the sunshine.

Excellent insulation effect

Acrylic has a very excellent insulation effect, it’s can be found in the use of some very small components insulator in many electronic products such as tablets, computers, mobile phones, computers, audio, television, and other products. You can see it if you pay attention to the maintenance of electronic products.

Strong weatherability

outdoor acrylic signage

Acrylic performs very well in any kind of weather. Even the extremely cold weather or exposed hot weather will not make it fragile or yellowing, which makes it a durable product to clean and maintain.

You may pay attention to the street light boxes, billboards, and curbside lampshades after work. The mast of them are made from acrylic materials and they are with very long service life. Because acrylic materials are stable and portable. If the light box is making of common glass, think about it, people are walking under it every day. If it fell down, that will be a very terror.

Eco-friendly

recycling acrylic

Acrylic is very environmentally friendly and we can use it repeatedly. We may often encounter such familiar scenes: when a glass cup is broken, what we do is to take the broom and pour the shards into the trash; when we are moving house, it turns to be a difficulty to get the glass products moved because it is heavy and inconvenient. However, if they are made from acrylic, we are free from worries.

High flexibility

bending acrylic

Acrylic can make many things. Acrylic material is kind of lighter than general glass, it is not complicated to do the cutting and processing either, and this is why acrylic products can fits almost all kind of customized needs in various industries. We can find acrylic products in many places; they appear to be cosmetics displays, photo frames and watches stands, or windows for airplanes, visual merchandising furniture, or aquarium.

Strong impact resistance

Strong impact resistance acrylic

The resistance of acrylic is 20 times higher than that of ordinary glass, which has been tested for many times in many experiments. A standard American M16 assault rifle cannot break through the acrylic and injure the target when a certain thickness of acrylic material is placed in front of the test protective body. This is why acrylic is widely used as a bulletproof material in many political leaders’ special cars.

Strong corrosion resistance

Strong corrosion resistance acrylic

Acrylic is a highly strong corrosion resistant material; it is no exaggeration that even strong sulfuric acid cannot hurt the surface of acrylic at all.

It is no doubt that people prefer acrylic instead of glass with such many advantages. With the development of technology, acrylic will be used in much more area in the near future.
