The customization of enamel pin needs to consider the choice of materials. Generally, custom badges are available in metal and non-metal materials. Metal materials include iron, copper, stainless steel, zinc alloy, gold and silver, etc., and non-metal materials include plastic, acrylic, Plexiglass, PVC soft glue, etc. Here is an introduction to common badge materials:
Iron badges are characterized by good hardness and relatively low price. After the iron badges are electroplated or painted, they look more like copper badges and have good textures. The disadvantage is that they are prone to rust after being left for a long time.
Copper is relatively soft and is the preferred metal for high-end badges. Whether it is brass, copper or copper, it can be used to make badges. Among them, copper is used for the manufacture of enamel badges, and brass and bronze are mainly used for imitation enamel badges and Manufacture of metal badges such as paint badges.

4. Zinc alloy
Zinc alloy is the preferred material for die-casting metal badges, because it has good casting properties and can be electroplated, painted, sprayed and other processes. It does not absorb iron and does not stick to the mold during die-casting, and has good room temperature mechanical properties and wear resistance. Etc. It is very suitable for making three-dimensional badges. However, zinc alloy badges are less resistant to corrosion and have a shorter life span than copper badges.
5. Gold and silver
Gold and silver materials are also commonly used to make badges. They are generally used to customize more advanced badges. After all, gold and silver materials are more expensive. Pure gold and silver are not commonly used. After other materials are used, the surface is gold-plated or silver-plated. very common.
6. Non-metallic materials
Non-metallic materials including plastic, acrylic, plexiglass, PVC soft glue and other materials can be used to make badges. The advantage is that they are not afraid of water, but the texture is worse than metal materials.
