Today, the craftsmanship of artificial flowers is getting better and better, and it can almost be real. In addition to imitations of various flowers, there are also artificial leaves, artificial branches, artificial weeds, artificial trees, artificial plants, and other varieties on the market.
Vulcanized rubber artificial flower production:
1. Flower-making: First, inject the vulcanized rubber solution into the mold, and then cool the blank to be molded into flowers or leaves.
2. Coloring: To color the blank obtained in the first step, you can achieve coloring by two methods:
(1) Sleeve glue: Immerse the blank obtained in the first step into the vulcanized rubber solution of other colors, and then put it out for cooling;
(2) Color spray: use the spray gun to spray the desired color on the blank obtained in the first step.
(3) Thermal synthesis type: place the blank after the second step of coloring in a heat sealer, control the heating temperature at about 200-300°C, and use a mold to emboss the blank to form a finished product.
(4) Assembling and shaping: the whole manufacturing process can be completed by fixing the finished flowers and leaves after heat sealing in the third step on the plastic glue rods wound by hand or by machine.
Artificial flowers containing cloth base plastic as raw materials:
1. Pattern: First, the raw material for this processing is pearl cotton, and its thickness is 0.5-1mm. The pearl cotton is more expensive than the press model. Cloth base;
2. Hanging glue: The cloth base obtained in the first step is immersed in the vulcanized rubber solution, and then cooled, and the vulcanized rubber is cured on it, thereby completing the production of the blank.
3. Coloring: Color the blank obtained in the second step. Thermal synthesis type: Put the blank after the third step of coloring in the heat sealing machine, and control the heating temperature to be around 60°C.
4. The heating temperature is low to avoid the EPE as the cloth base from melting at high temperature, and the mold is used. The blank is embossed to form a finished product:
5. Assembling and shaping: the finished flower and leaf after heat sealing in the fourth step are fixed on a hand-wrapped or machine-made plastic glue rod to complete the entire manufacturing process.
