MANUFACTURE OF PLASTIC PRODUCTS AND FORMS BY OWN HANDS
Business idea for the organization of small-scale production of products from a variety of molding materials at home. Thanks to innovative technologies today in the manufacture of plastic products, you can do without expensive machine tools, thermoplastic machines. Moreover, you can set up small-scale mini-production right on your desktop. This business idea can be viewed in two ways:
As the main business in the manufacture of finished products and molds by casting from: liquid:
transparent resins and other materials.
Production of forms as an effective addition to other types of business in the area:
In the first and second cases, casting at home does not require large investments of financial resources. Start a molding business, you can just now.
MANUFACTURING THROUGH LIQUID PLASTICS
Made souvenirs. The manufacturing process is carried out using liquid plastics and silicone forms. Now there is an opportunity at home to produce plastic products in small batches:
spare parts for auto-tuning;
spare parts for various mechanical devices;
There are components for the manufacture of parts from thin-walled plastic, which can significantly expand the product range and produce parts of any complexity. For example, mixing two components of the Axson FASTCAST F32 brand from a French manufacturer makes it possible to obtain super-liquid plastic, which drains the smallest creases of the model’s topography. In addition, it is harmless to children and has no odor.
PREPARATION FOR PRODUCTION
Liquid plastic. For the organization of production will require first model sample. On it, you first need to make a form of special silicone or polyurethane components. With the experience and quality of materials, you can learn to remove forms from models at such a high level that even fingerprints will be visible on products (if necessary). That is, a copy is obtained at the level of identity, which cannot be distinguished with an unaided eye. Plastic products can be given complex compounds with any relief. If there is no ready model for the sample, but you need to make unique products, you can order it from the owners of the 3D printer. By the way casting significantly exceeds the performance of 3D printing from plastic.
Varnishes and paints for plastic.
When your product is ready, you can arrange it with the help of related products that are attached to liquid plastics:
paints for artistic effects;
Naturally, in some cases, you cannot do without creativity, and you will have to manually paint the products, which can affect productivity. But the creation of each business is undoubtedly a creative process. After all, financial management is an art.
WE MAKE A PRODUCT FROM LIQUID PLASTIC
Withdrawal form The technology of creating the perfect shallow relief when making in silicone form with your own hands. First you need to prepare all the components and materials. We will need:
Liquid plastic Axson FASTCAST F18 (white, has the consistency of water, odorless!).
Dye for scarlet silicone.
Securely fasten the model to the bottom of the formwork to form a mold using neutral wax clay (to avoid silicone leakage). We paint the silicone, from which the finished form turns into a scarlet color, so that on the form you can clearly see the quality of mixing the components of the liquid, white to the color of the plastic. Good advice: that the form was ideal, it is necessary preliminary to smear model sample with silicone by means of a wide brush. Thus, it is neat to fill in all the indentations of the topography of the compounds. Only after that, fill the form completely. Silicone fill all the formwork. We leave on fixing the structure of the form for 7-8 hours. The hardest thing behind.
Congratulations !!! Now you have a ready-made form for the repeated production of copies of the model sample. Before you start casting, make sure that the mold is completely dried in order to avoid the formation of bubbles. Then we very carefully mix the components of plastic 1: 1 by weight (for this, it is better to use pharmaceutical or laboratory electronic scales). The setting time is 7 minutes, but it will take another 20 minutes to fully consolidate. This plastic is neutral to silicone and does not stick to it. But after repeated use of the compounds over time, you may need a lubricant-separator with protective properties EaseRelease. After the expiration of the required time we obtain the finished product, which is copied exactly according to the sample.
POLYURETHANE FORMS FOR CONSTRUCTION
Fence in polyurethane. Together with plastic products can be made for casting. The use of molds in construction is now very popular. Can produce compounds for the production of building materials.
