In daily life, we can see that many acrylic products are curved. In fact, these are heat-treated. Due to the strong plasticity of acrylic, it can be bent into a beautiful arc after heating. Also can be other irregular shapes. Such as furniture, display racks, windows, protective covers, handicrafts, architectural decorations, etc. It can be applied to acrylic products such as furniture, display stands, windows, protective covers, handicrafts, and architectural decorations.
With the wide application of acrylic products in various industries, acrylic processing technology is becoming more and more mature. Among them, the heat bending process is a very common one. From a piece of board to a flexible and changeable ideal shape. While creating a linear aesthetic, the acrylic hot-bending process can also present a seamless and harmonious aesthetic. Therefore, it is very popular. The following are two common acrylic heat bending process introductions.
The first type is partial heat bending. Place the part of the acrylic sheet to be bent on top of the heating rod. After the heated position reaches the softening point, bend it into the arc shape you want along the heated and softened position. After bending, the acrylic is cooled and shaped. This kind of heat bending is usually suitable for hot bending at a certain angle to form a smooth arc. It is the most widely used heat bending method in the processing of acrylic display stands, advertisement signs and other products.
The second type is integral heat bending. Generally in the drying room for operation. And according to the requirement of heat bending shape to develop the corresponding mold. Combine the acrylic sheet with the mold, push it into the oven, and set the corresponding temperature. Then monitor the temperature record and the effect of acrylic hot bending. After heating, cool naturally. The cooling process also needs to be monitored. Acrylic sheets will shrink when the temperature changes, through monitoring and recording can ensure the final form of the product. This heat bending method is to change the surface of acrylic, which is suitable for hemispherical and spherical acrylic products.
