Resin buttons and plastic buttons are often confused with each other in our daily lives, and we can’t tell them apart. We often use a button with a smooth surface, different shapes and colors, and looks very much like plastic in appearance. In fact, this type of button is not as simple as we see, it still has obvious differences. First of all, we have to distinguish resin button and plastic buttons from this type of buttons. Distinguish between resin and plastic: Resin usually refers to an organic polymer that has a softening or melting range after being heated. When softened, it has a tendency to flow under the action of external force. It is solid, semi-solid, or sometimes liquid at room temperature. Broadly speaking, any polymer that can be used as a raw material for processing plastic products is called resin. Plastic refers to resin (or direct polymerization of monomers during processing) as the main component, with plasticizers, fillers, lubricants, colorants and other additives as auxiliary components, and can flow and form during processing. Material. It can be seen that resin is one of the raw materials of plastic, and plastic is the finished product of resin. In layman's terms, what is not molded is resin, and what is molded is plastic. In terms of the chemical properties of these two materials, plastics are divided into two categories: thermoset and thermoplastic. Thermoset plastics cannot be reshaped and used, while thermoplastic plastics can be produced repeatedly. The difference between resin buttons and plastic buttons lies in the processing method, not the difference between resin and plastic itself. Resin buttons are liquid substances that are formed by heating, cooling, solidifying, cutting and other processes in a cavity such as a special tube, or by coating liquid resin on the surface of a roller to solidify and stamping, and then enter subsequent processing; while plastic buttons It is made of solid materials, mostly resin particles, which are injection molded through an injection molding machine and a mold.

Due to the different processing methods of the two materials, the effects of the finished products produced are also different. Resin buttons have a smooth surface and thick appearance, and should be more widely used. Plastic buttons can produce various styles of buttons according to the changing shapes of the mold, and they are easier to electroplat than resin buttons.
