1、 What are the benefits of silicone
Silicone is an amorphous substance and is a highly active adsorption material. Compared to other similar materials, it has many advantages, such as high adsorption performance, stable chemical properties, high temperature resistance, and low cold resistance; Both toughness and elasticity are very good. It will not deform due to external forces. In terms of environmental protection, it will not fail to meet the testing standards due to the environmental indicators generated by printing, as it does not contain harmful substances (see the testing report). Everyone knows that silicone is used in baby bottles and nipples, so the product can explain whether silicone is good or not, because baby products are the highest testing standard.
2、 What have we experienced in developing silicone:
In 2021, the General Manager, Technical Department, and R&D Department repeatedly developed the country's first "flat silicone" at all costs. The company successfully developed it in August and promoted it to the market in October. After gradually advancing the market development in 2022, the "flat silicone series" was also introduced to the market. Now, there are: color printing silicone, spot color silicone, reflective silicone, luminous silicone, temperature changing silicone Various processes such as chameleon silicone.
Just say "color printing flat silicone", the industry has always been a very difficult process to overcome because it has many technical defects, which peers say cannot be made. However, we still believe that our technology has always been at the forefront in the same industry. There are two major issues with research and development: one is consumables, and the other is time-consuming and costly. The general manager of the company has the confidence to disregard consequences and the attitude of all departments working together. In the words of the general manager, "Hot stamping is not about making high-tech products, as long as you put your heart into it, you will definitely succeed.
So, color printed flat silicone has finally appeared in the market, and these processes are now natural. To clarify, we have produced 18 colors for screen printing spot colors, and there are also several types of reflective colors available. There are also many types of screen printing spot colors available. Nightlight, temperature changes, etc. can also be customized according to customer requirements.
3、 Why do we need to develop the silicone product
1. Company reason: In 2021, one of the best years for market development, the output capacity, sales revenue, cost control, and other factors have all reached historical highs. In addition, many of our hot stamping products are already industry-leading in terms of craftsmanship, but we are never satisfied with the current situation. History has made us firmly remember that 'if we fall behind, we will be beaten', so we also want to continue to break through and develop new products.
2. Industry reason: For nearly 10 years, there has been no new technological breakthrough in heat transfer printing and hot stamping, and only some new products have been added on the basis of the original "powder passing process", without completely separating from the overall process of "powder passing".
3. Market reason: Traditional flat hot stamping, no matter how good the craftsmanship, cannot fully enter the high-end market. It basically walks in daily life such as e-commerce, physical wholesale, and clothing stores. For example, luxury goods, international top brands, etc. rarely use traditional hot stamping, and it is known that thick plate three-dimensional silicone adhesive has been accepted by major brands. Especially for live streaming platforms, they can best reflect the advantages of "flat silicone".
Based on the above reasons, the Technology Department and R&D Department have been continuously improving for up to one year; The operations department, sales department, and publicity department will increase their promotion efforts. As of now, there are 12 large international and domestic brands authorized to sign contracts to customize our products, including Nike, Fiele, HM, Puma, and Meituan
4、 How good and high-end are flat silicone products
First of all, look at the surface effect. The matte effect of the printed product reflects the high-end of the product. Let's compare traditional hot stamping with silicone hot stamping. See, it's not different. Taking a closer look at the adhesive edge is the biggest pain point in the hot stamping industry. Silicone products do not have adhesive edges, and traditional hot stamping cannot solve the problem of adhesive edges even if done well.
Secondly, what is a brand is to have a good reputation for the product, increase the impression of the brand, and make multiple purchases; That requires the pattern to stay on the clothes for a long time, without cracks, and without changing color. Only in this way can the brand value be reflected. Flat silicone hot stamping completely solves these problems. I tested an industrial washing machine with a temperature of 60 degrees Celsius and tested it for 10 or more. Traditional hot stamping glue has melted after being heated, so it fell off. When I looked at it again, I repeatedly pulled it without any cracks, and at the same time, it rebounded to maintain its original state. Continuing to look, prolonged washing can cause the color to change, while silicone will not. To summarize, we often say, 'Use silicone patterned clothes until they are no longer in use and remain the same'
In addition, there is a sense of experience. Traditional hot stamping has a sticky feeling in summer and a relatively hard feel in winter. I tested outdoors at a high temperature of 38 degrees Celsius for nearly 40 minutes in the summer and did not feel sticky to my hands; And now it's winter, feel as soft as the touch, feel it! Very skin friendly, very soft like baby's skin. There are also traditional large patterns that are thick, heavy, and breathable, and silicone that is skin friendly and soft can also solve this problem!
With these advantages, one can know how good the flat silicone series is and fully demonstrate the value of its high-end products.
