A resin coating is sheets of synthetic resins such as polycarbonate and vinyl chloride.
They can be used for a wide variety of functions, depending on the type of material, composition, shape, and color tone.
A resin coating is used in an extremely wide range of applications, from everyday items such as displays and showcases to construction materials, barn materials, and semiconductor manufacturing equipment.
Resin coatings are broadly classified into two categories according to the type of resin used.
The first is thermoplastic resin coatings, which are molded from materials that soften when heated.
The second is thermosetting resin coatings, which are made of molded resin that hardens when heated.
Thermoplastic resin has the property of softening and fluidizing when heated to the temperature at which the resin melts and hardening when cooled.
Although it may seem that thermoplastics have low heat resistance when you hear that they are softened by heat, on the other hand, they can be processed into complex shapes by heat, and they also have advantages such as the ability to recycle scrap materials generated in the manufacturing process and materials recovered after general distribution.
Typical thermoplastic resin coatings include polycarbonate, polyvinyl chloride, polyethylene terephthalate, and ABS resin coatings.
Thermosetting resins harden when heated to a temperature at which the resin or curing agent initiates a cross-linking reaction.
Once cured, they do not soften even if heat is applied again.
Typical thermosetting resin coatings include phenol and melamine resin coatings.
Resin coatings are used in a wide range of applications, from general applications that we see in our daily lives to industrial applications such as construction, livestock breeding, and semiconductor manufacturing equipment.
The following are typical applications of resin coatings.
Polycarbonate plates have excellent features of impact resistance and mechanical strength among many resin coatings.
It also has excellent weather resistance, which is necessary for outdoor use, and its self-extinguishing properties are used in building materials such as carports, corrugated plates, and roofing materials.
Its impact resistance is also used in bulletproof glass.
Vinyl chloride plate is resin coatings with a long history of use.
In addition to their superior strength, they are easy to process and are used in a wide variety of fields, such as stationery and displays.
It is also used in semiconductor manufacturing equipment because it can be given high chemical resistance and flame retardant in a wide variety of resin formulations.
Polyethylene terephthalate resin, also known as PET resin, is the raw material for the PET bottles that we often see in our daily lives.
Plates molded from this resin coatings are relatively inexpensive and easy to process.
Another advantage is that when completely combusted, it decomposes into carbon dioxide and water without producing toxic gases.
ABS resin is a copolymer of acrylonitrile, butadiene, and styrene and has excellent chemical resistance.
Plates molded from it can be painted and are used in electrical equipment and automotive parts.
Most phenolic resin coatings are formed by impregnating wood with resin and then heating it under vacuum conditions.
Although relatively expensive, their insulating properties and strength are utilized as plates for transformers and switchboards.
Melamine resin coatings are often used as decorative laminates for furniture and kitchens.
Paper is impregnated with melamine resin and heated to form.
It is also known as a synonym for decorative plate because of its high heat resistance and scratch-resistant features.
The molding method for resin coatings must be selected to suit the characteristics of each resin.
For example, extrusion molding is often used for thermoplastic resins, such as polycarbonate and polyvinyl chloride.
Extrusion molding is a molding method in which resins are fed into an extruder, heated and mixed to a molten state, and then cooled with cooling rolls to adjust thickness and other qualities.
On the other hand, press molding is often used for thermosetting resins, such as phenol and melamine resins.
In press molding, the wood material is impregnated with liquid resin and hardener before it is cured on paper, and then hardened by heat and pressure in a press.
