What Kind Of Printing Can Boardway's Foamed PVC Sheet Be Used For?

What Kind Of Printing Can Boardway's Foamed PVC Sheet Be Used For? Boardway's foamed PVC sheet is widely used in various industries due to its excellent waterproof, light weight, flame retardant, easy printing, and engraving properties. Advertising signs is one of the main applications. PVC free foam board and PVC celuka foam board, as well as PVC co-extruded foam board can be used for printing. Screen printing Suitable for no more than 4 single colors in printing at a time. Compared with UV printing, screen printing inks are thicker, so colors end up looking much better. Besides, screen printing costs lower than UV printing. Silk Printing Factory UV printingCompared with screen printing, the colors of UV printing are more comprehensive and more vibrant. When the selected HD image finished layout design and positioning, the printing can start right away.The ink jet printer doesn't limit the minimum quantity of printing, so UV printing is very suitable for small batch production or individual product. Both two printing methods have high requirements on the surface of PVC foam board, so the surface must be cleaned before printing. To ensure the printing effect, the surface must be free of dust and stain without holes or scratches.

What kind of PVC foam board is suitable for my application?

What kind of PVC foam board is suitable for my application? 1.Choose according to the thickness of the product If the required thickness of the foam sheet is less than 3mm, then PVC free foam sheet is preferred;If the required thickness is higher than 20mm, PVC celuka foam sheet should be given priority.  2. To choose according to the application Digital printing: 1mm-6mm PVC free foam board performs very well with its excellent matted effect which enables the ink to have a stronger adhesion to the foam board surface. Engraving PVC foam board used for engraving should be rigid with fine and homogenous closed cell structure. That is why most customers choose PVC celuka foam board with 3mm thickness for engraving. Bathroom cabinet The shapes on the cabinet door or cabinet panel are usually processed by hot bending, using PVC celuka foam board thicker than 12mm. Different from PVC celuka foam board, PVC co-extruded foam board is produced by two moulds at the same time, to say, one for core layer, the other one for two surface skins. So, it is likely that there will be some cracks between the core layer and surface skins under hot bending. Tabletop PVC co-extruded foam board is perfect fit for restaurants, buffet lines or cocktail parties due to its extruded rigid and smooth finishes on both sides. Ambulance interior cabinet PVC co-extruded foam board is a good choice for ambulance interior cabinets as well.

When we engrave on a PVC foam board, how can we ensure its engraving surface is smooth?

When we engrave on a PVC foam board, how can we ensure its engraving surface is smooth? PVC foam board, an ideal material that is widely used in advertising, furniture cabinets and interior decoration etc. PVC foam boards are often used to engrave into a variety of designed shapes. So how can an engraving surface be smooth without burrs, showing a beautiful appearance? There are some tips for your reference. Material Choose a PVC foam board suitable for engraving. From the technical point of view, PVC celuka foam board should be given priority, followed by PVC co-extruded foam board and PVC free foam board; In terms of density, try to choose the foam board with a density higher than 0.5g/cm3; In terms of the appearance, select a foam board without bubbles in the cross section.The quality of PVC foam board is a key factor that contributes to the smoothness in the engraving.                     Engraving Partition Wall Engraving Tool First, the appropriate engraving tool should be selected according to the design pattern. There are many types of engraving tools, of which the diameter, length, and shapes are different. Single blade, double blade, flat bottom, pointed bottom and round bottom; diameter ranging from 3.175mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm etc. And then comes to cylindrical shape, V-shaped and slotted shaped etc. Secondly, the long-term use of the engraving tool will cause itself to wear seriously and become blunt, resulting in a non-smooth cutting surface. Therefore, it is necessary to change the tool regularly to ensure a smooth cutting surface. It is advised to choose the right tool and carefully observe it during the engraving process. If the cutting surface is not smooth, please replace the tool in time. Path settings for engraving toolBoth the path setting of the engraving tool and its rotating directionhave a great influence on the smoothness of the cutting surface. You can improve the smoothness of the cutting surface by changing the tool’s direction in the software.For example, when producing embossing effect on the board and trimming straight edges along it, we can use the pointed knife to make surface engraving. Then, change to straight knife for trimming. So you can see this is a process that is completed by two types of engraving tools.If the customer does not require the edge of the product to be straight, then it is usually carved and cut with only a pointed knife, saving the trouble of changing knifes during the process. However, the finished cutting will be a bit angled. Some customers with low requirements think it acceptable, and the processing price is relatively cheaper. If the customer wants the cutting edge to be straight, it must be cut with a straight knife and the processing cost will increase. The straight knife is trimming. Rotating speed and running speed of the engraving toolThe engraving tool that rotates and runseither too fast or too slowly will result in rough engraving. Therefore, we should adjust the rotating and running speed to find a balance between engraving effect and economic benefit. Apart from that, we need to sum up experience during the process to find the most suitable rotating and running speed.
