Polyester button to ISRI is working with the U.S. government and European recycling organizations to discuss the transfer printing technology.
unsaturated polyester resin, as an important variety of synthetic resin, is developing very rapidly. Due to its excellent mechanical properties, electrical properties and chemical corrosion resistance, as well as the easy availability of raw materials, simple processing technology and high practical value, its production and processing industry is developing very rapidly. Its products have been widely used in various fields of the national economy, such as construction engineering, electrical engineering, transportation, aerospace, chemical industry, daily-use products and their arts and crafts
this paper focuses on the printing technology of polyester buttons in daily-use products and handicrafts. In foreign countries, such as the United States, Britain, Japan and Italy, polyester resin is injected into the lead mold for hot casting. After curing, unsaturated polyester has high hardness, relatively light color and easy coloring. This process can be used to produce various daily-use products such as knife handles, brush handles, umbrella handles and buttons. The development of modern Chinese button industry should be said to have started from Suzhou Jiamei button factory. In may1985, the factory introduced the internationally advanced Italian unsaturated polyester resin button production line in the 1980s, developed the first new button product in China, and became the earliest manufacturer of unsaturated polyester buttons in China, thus promoting the development of the domestic button industry and shortening the distance from the international advanced level. In foreign countries, the production of "pearl buttons" with unsaturated polyester castables began in 1957, while China just introduced this technology in 1985. It is 27 years behind. In general, the production technology of unsaturated polyester resin in China lags far behind the world's advanced level. As for unsaturated polyester resin, there are only hundreds of varieties, while there are thousands abroad, most of which are general-purpose resins, and many important special varieties are lacking. As for the button industry, the gap is even greater. Today's buttons, in addition to its original connection function, more reflect its decoration and beautification function. Its decorative function far exceeds its actual function. Now buttons play a "finishing touch" role in clothing, and it is already an art decoration. In the bustling market, we often see colorful buttons like pearls, gold and diamonds, which add rich colors to people's lives. They are deeply loved by the majority of consumers and arouse customers' desire to buy
synthetic material (resin) buttons are one of the most popular buttons with the largest sales volume, the most varieties in the current world button market. They are the product of the development of modern chemical industry. Like other resin products, resin buttons are colored before forming. The disadvantage is that the coloring is not bright. Most of them are light colors such as black, white, gray and beige. The color of buttons is often not properly matched with clothing, which affects the beauty of clothing. In addition, because buttons are really small in the huge clothing family, it seems that under the control of the idea of big industry and big products, we have never poured too much enthusiasm into buttons as a small add-on. For a long time, people often recognize the value of a button based on its price. This traditional concept has constrained the development of small buttons. Therefore, most domestic button manufacturing enterprises still stay in the production mode of small-scale and small-scale workshops, which widens the distance from the rapid development of the garment industry and leads to misunderstandings in the positioning and concept of the button industry. The small button can make a big market, lacking the development concept of keeping pace with the times and the sensitive response and grasp to the market, which has affected the rapid development of the button industry
the most important Casting Application of polyester resin is to manufacture "pearlescent buttons". Polyester buttons are washable and can withstand the ironing noise of iron 1 in a short time. Polyester button casting material can be mixed with artificial or natural pearlescent powder or added with several pigments as required, and sometimes injected with gold or silver thread for decoration. This casting method is to decorate the whole button, which is not only labor-intensive, but also difficult to reduce costs. Moreover, the decorative effect of the button requires the button surface. For example, the pearlescent pigment in the pearlescent button plays the role of reflecting light, which makes the button glitter and play the decorative effect. This requires that the pearlescent pigment particles are orderly arranged on a plane of the button to play the best effect. In order to achieve this goal, the enterprise must purchase a set of relevant equipment for pearlescent surface curing to meet the above requirements. In addition to retaining this kind of button variety, whether we can develop some articles on polyester button surface processing --- polyester button sublimation transfer printing technology is based on this development idea. The following is a brief introduction of this preliminary attempt:
I. concept of transfer printing method
polyester is the general name of polymer compounds containing ester bonds in the main chain. It is generally formed by condensation polymerization of dibasic acid and dibasic alcohol. Polyester can be divided into two categories, one is saturated polyester resin, which can be made into fiber or film, commonly known as "polyester". The other is unsaturated polyester resin. The name unsaturated polyester resin generally refers to the solution of unsaturated polyester in liquid ethylene monomer. When applied, initiator and accelerator are added to react to form a three-dimensional structure and solidify into a solid state. Polyester buttons are also produced according to this principle. Sublimation transfer printing of polyester fabric has been a gold testing high temperature furnace electronic universal testing machine. This paper introduces a very mature fabric printing technology. Whether this technology can be transferred to the use of resin buttons is a new topic, and it is also a problem expected by button enterprises. Disperse dye dyeing is a new direction in principle within the coloring range, which is proved to be feasible by experiments. Dry transfer printing uses the poor sublimation fastness of some disperse dyes to sublimate the dyes printed in the pattern into gas due to heating through high temperature and certain pressure, and transfer them from paper to polyester buttons. When the temperature rises to 190-200 ℃, the molecular links in the amorphous region of the polyester soften into a semi molten state due to intensified heating movement. At this time, the original micro gap in the amorphous region expands. At this time, the disperse dye sublimates from the solid dye to the dye gas by circuitous heat. It first invades the surface of the polyester micro gap for condensation, and then diffuses from the micro gap in the expanded amorphous region to the inside of the button. After cooling, it becomes a dye molecular state and exists in the polyester. Make the printing coloring complete
