Acrylic displays are more and more widely used and welcomed because of their beauty and practicality.
First, let’s introduce the material used to make an acrylic display stand. Acrylic, also called PMMA or plexiglass, is derived from English acrylic (acrylic plastic), and its chemical name is polymethyl methacrylate. It is an important plastic polymer material developed earlier. It has better transparency, chemical stability, and weather resistance, easy to dye, easy to process, and beautiful. It has a wide range of applications in the construction industry. Plexiglass products can usually be divided into cast plates, extruded plates, and molding compounds.
A new type of energy material has become everyone’s darling. At first, it was because acrylic has good light transmittance, and it can compete with crystal. The high-quality weather resistance makes the processed acrylic products. Furthermore, the acrylic sheet has processability. Dyeing, the surface can be painted, silkscreen or vacuum coated into acrylic products with various shapes and patterns. Having said so many benefits of acrylic, how do you evaluate the quality of acrylic?
What Are the Good Features of The Acrylic Material?
First of all, the hardness is good: the main advantage of the acrylic panel is the high hardness, and its hardness is one of the indicators to measure the quality of the board. The hardness index of a good acrylic panel can reach about 89 degrees, and the acrylic panel is particularly adaptable, can be used for a long time in the sun and rain, and has a good anti-aging performance.
Good transparency and strong light transmittance: The transparency and light transmittance of the acrylic sheet are very good, which can reach more than 92% because it can ensure the transparency and pure whiteness of the sheet during the production process.
Convenient maintenance and strong plasticity: The acrylic board is very easy to clean. Generally, it can be wiped dry with a rag dipped in clean water or soapy water, and the acrylic board has strong plasticity and is easy to process and shape. Strong impact resistance and rich colors: Acrylic panels have stronger impact resistance than other panels, ten times that of ordinary glass, and have very high safety performance and a wide variety of products. The decoration of the same space. Generally speaking, the main characteristics of acrylic are as follows.
1. The transparent board is crystal clear and transparent
2. High gloss, smooth and flat surface
3. Unparalleled outdoor weather resistance
4. Complete product series, with transparent, translucent, milky white colors and various surface effects
5. Waste materials can be completely recycled, and recycling is simple and easy
6. Good chemical resistance, better than most other plastic materials
7. Easy to clean, maintain, and ensure the appearance of signboards and lightboxes is always new
8. Excellent surface hardness and scratch resistance
9. The transparent board is crystal clear and transparent
10. High gloss, smooth and flat surface
11. Unparalleled outdoor weather resistance
12. The product series are complete, with transparent, translucent, milky white colors and various surface effects
13. Waste materials can be completely recycled, and recycling is simple and easy
14. Good chemical resistance, better than most other plastic materials
15. Easy to clean, maintain, and ensure the appearance of signs and lightboxes is always new
16. Acrylic displays Excellent surface hardness and scratch resistance.
For an ordinary consumer, acrylic, a professional chemical material, does not know how to distinguish it. Simply put, the choice of a good acrylic display stand can be judged from the following points.
Material Appearance of Acrylic Displays
When viewing and purchasing acrylic display stands, you need to pay attention to the appearance of the material. If it is a transparent material, whether it has high transparency, high brightness, and no bubbles. If it is a non-transparent material, look at whether the color is uniform and whether there are pits on the surface of the glossy material. ,
Observe the light transmission
The authenticity can be distinguished by observing the white light from the light passing through the acrylic plate. When the light passes through the acrylic plate, if the color is yellow or blue, it means that the quality of the acrylic displays are in question because the Acrylic sheet has a high light transmittance and does not absorb light color, so after the light passes through the acrylic sheet, it should be white light under normal circumstances.
Imported or high-quality acrylic display stands, whose materials usually have excellent light transmittance, are very white, and will not turn yellow or blue. Of course, the light should be white, and the light transmittance is also different. This directly affects the transmission performance of the luminous light source, the absolute brightness of the luminous signboard, the light transmittance of better quality plexiglass products is usually above 92%, that is, it looks close to the transparency of the glass, if the panel looks turbid and hazy, Indicating that the quality of raw materials is not good enough. Acrylic sheets of poor quality are very brittle and fade quickly after being exposed to the sun and wind, and lose their original luster.
The uniformity of color is also one of the important methods to determine the authenticity of acrylic materials. For acrylic displays with uniform color, the quality generally can withstand inspection.
When purchasing an acrylic cube, you should observe whether the surface of the acrylic display stand is scratched, air bubbles, oil stains, etc. If it is a colorless and transparent acrylic display stand, it depends on its transparency and whether the color is yellow The transparency of acrylic display stands made of high-quality imported materials is very high.
The color of the panel mouth, that is, the edge part of the board, if the raw material is high-quality plexiglass, the board mouth should be transparent and will not change color or yellow, otherwise it will be a secondary process of waste.
Another relatively simple observation method is: to see if the actual conditions of the manual and the acrylic sheet are consistent with the manual of Biakli, if you find inconsistencies, you can roughly judge the irregularity of the acrylic sheet.
Judge the quality by a simple touch of acrylic displays
The surface of the high-quality acrylic displays is round and smooth and feels good. If it is made of glossy acrylic material, its surface must be round and smooth, without burrs, and feel good; if it is made of matte acrylic material, it must be that the surface of the acrylic material has uniform matte particles. No pitting on the surface. There are no air bubbles, and it will not easily leave fingerprints or marks after touching it by hand.
Top glass acrylic displays are very smooth and comfortable to the touch, including the edge of the display stand is handled very well during acrylic processing, there will be no roughness and burrs, and the sharp right angles are generally rounded so that it will not I will cut my hands, and I am very careful in handling details.
It feels gelatinous to the hand. If you look carefully, there are no small pores on the surface. If there is lime on the surface, there will be some small pores. Such materials contain more calcium and have poor toughness. SOONXIN is not recommended.
Hot Melt Method
The hot-melt method is also called the pasting method, and its principle is to distinguish the difference between the good acrylic sheet and the second acrylic sheet. Acrylic sheets of lower quality will be stuck together and difficult to separate after being hot melted, while acrylic sheets of good quality are easily separated.
Hardness is one of the parameters that best reflects the production process and technology of cast acrylic sheets
Acrylic sheets of poor quality are very brittle and fade quickly after being exposed to the sun and wind, losing their original luster. This is because the hardness directly affects whether the sheet will shrink, bend, and deform and whether the surface will crack during processing. The cast acrylic sheet has the highest hardness index at present, with an average Da Rockwell hardness value of 90 degrees. Secondly, the hardness of the acrylic sheet can also reflect the purity of the raw material PMMA, the weather resistance of the sheet, and the high-temperature resistance.
The hardness of acrylic displays can be used to test the bearing capacity of the display stand. The test standard is very simple. Use a little force to see if the acrylic panel is deformed. If there is a different degree of deformation, the product is unqualified. Within a certain range, apply pressure, acrylic The product should be consistent and flat without deformation.
Many consumers don’t know that acrylic has thickness tolerances. Due to the limitation of the acrylic production process, there will be some errors. The only difference is the difference in intolerance. Regular acrylic processing manufacturers will choose imported plates with small thickness tolerances to display the stands. When purchasing acrylic displays and stands you can bring a tape measure with you to measure the thickness.
The dimensional tolerance range directly determines the quality of acrylic products. Generally, thick plexiglass uses enough material and good quality. The thickness specification is usually set in 0.1mm units, and the deviation should be within 0.05mm. If it exceeds this value, then It shows that quality control is not good enough.
Nowadays, many sheet metal manufacturers on the market prefer to supply finished sheet products with negative tolerances of materials. There is no doubt that this kind of cutting corners has reduced the cost of raw materials in disguise and achieved the purpose of shoddy sales.
In addition to distinguishing the quality of acrylic displays and racks from the raw materials and appearance, the functional design of the overall product is also one of the content to determine the quality of an acrylic display rack. A good acrylic display stands especially like Jewelry Display, Eyewear Display, can fully and display the required content, leave a deep impression on consumers, and achieve the role of brand promotion.
Good acrylic displays must have good stability and consistency. During its use, the acrylic display stand will not be deformed or slightly distorted after placing items.
All in all, acrylic displays must be able to attract the attention of consumers when the product is displayed on the terminal, and give people a bright feeling, to achieve the purpose of product display, and at the same time improve the brand’s popularity and reputation.
