Types of Laser Engraving Machines for Mugs, Cups, Tumblers and Ramblers?
Types of Mugs, Cups, Tumblers or Ramblers
There are many types of mugs and cups, which can be classified according to materials: ceramic mugs, glass mugs, plastic cups, stainless steel mugs, stone mugs, cloisonne cups; They can be divided into daily cups, advertising cups, promotional cups, vacuum cups, and health care cups according to their functions cups; They can be divided into acacia cups, couple cups, couples cups according to the moral; They can be divided into single-layer cups, double-layer cups, vacuum cups, nano cups, energy cups, ecological cups according to the structural process.
Plastic cups are loved by many people because of their changeable shapes, bright colors, and fear of being beaten. They are very suitable for outdoor users and office workers. Generally speaking, the bottom of the plastic cup has a logo, which is the number on the small triangle. The common one is "05", which means that the material of the cup is PP (polypropylene). The cup made of PP has good heat resistance, the melting point is between 170℃ and 172℃, and the chemical properties are also relatively stable. It is relatively stable to other chemical reagents except being corroded by concentrated sulfuric acid and concentrated nitric acid. But the problem of ordinary plastic cups is very common. Plastic is a polymer chemical material. When the hot water or boiling water is filled in a plastic disposable cup, the polymer will easily precipitate and dissolve into the water, which is harmful to human health after drinking. And the internal microstructure of the plastic has a lot of pores, where dirt is hidden, and bacteria will grow if it is not cleaned. Therefore, the selection of plastic cups is very important for the selection of plastic materials. Food grade plastics that meet national standards must be selected. That is PP material.
The colorful ceramic water glasses are very flattering, but in fact, there are huge hidden dangers in those bright paints. The inner wall of a low-cost colored ceramic cup is usually coated with a layer of glaze. When the glazed mug is filled with boiling water or beverages with high acidity and alkalinity, some toxic elements of aluminum and other heavy metals in the glaze will easily precipitate out and dissolve into the liquid. At this time, people drink liquids with chemicals, and the human body will be hurt. It is best to use a natural mug for the ceramic cup. If you can’t resist the temptation of color, you can reach out to touch the color surface. If the surface is smooth, it means that it is under-glaze or mid-glaze, which is relatively safe; if it is uneven, use your nails to pull it. There will also be shedding, which means that it is a glaze and it is best not to buy it.
At present, almost every family and unit will prepare paper disposable cups, which can be thrown away once used by one person. It is hygienic and convenient, but such a common cup hides many problems. There are three types of paper cups on the market: the first one is made of white cardboard and cannot contain water and oil. The second is a wax-coated paper cup. As long as the water temperature exceeds 40°C, the wax will melt and release the carcinogen polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. The third type is paper-plastic cups. If the selected materials are not good or the processing technology is not enough, the process of hot melting or application of polyethylene to the paper cups will cause cracking changes and produce carcinogens. In order to increase the toughness and rigidity of the cup, the paper cup will add plasticizer. If the dosage is too large or illegal plasticizers are used, the hygiene status is difficult to guarantee.
The first choice for drinking glasses should be glasses, especially for office and home users. Glass is not only transparent and beautiful, but of all materials, glass is the most healthy and safe. The glass is made of inorganic silicates. It does not contain organic chemicals during the firing process. When people use the glass to drink water or other drinks, there is no need to worry about the chemicals being drunk into the belly; And the glass surface is smooth, easy to clean, bacteria and dirt are not easy to grow on the wall of the cup, so people drink water from the glass is the healthiest and safest. However, it should be noted that the glass is most afraid of thermal expansion and contraction, and the glass with a low temperature should not be filled with hot water immediately to prevent bursting.
Stainless Steel Mugs
The advantages of stainless steel mugs are sturdiness, rust and corrosion resistance. However, stainless steel cups are alloy products and contain more heavy metal substances, such as nickel, chromium, manganese, etc. If used improperly, these heavy metal substances are easily released and endanger health. Therefore, in daily use, be careful not to use stainless steel cups to hold acidic drinks, such as juice, coffee, carbonated drinks; it is not allowed to hold soy sauce, vinegar, vegetable soup, tea for a long time, because the electrolyte in these foods may be heavy metals in stainless steel react chemically, causing heavy metals to be precipitated. When washing stainless steel cups, do not use strong alkaline or strong oxidizing chemicals such as soda, bleaching powder, etc. These substances are also easy to chemically react with stainless steel.
Enamel drinking glass is also a good choice. Enamel is a composite material that inorganic glass material is melted and solidified on metal through thousands of degrees. Enamel coating on the metal surface can prevent rust, so that when the metal is heated, it will not form an oxide layer on the surface and can resist the erosion of various liquids. Enamel products do not contain harmful substances such as lead, are easy to carry and clean, and are widely used as eating utensils and washing utensils used in daily life. The enamel cup has a disadvantage. The enamel cup is afraid of knocking and the surface is prone to breakage. Some studies have shown that the damaged enamel cups are prone to release harmful substances when holding beverages, and should be decisively eliminated.
