How to Choose Good Quality Plywood

➨   Should be FSC certified. E0 or E1 level. It will guarantee your material is safe and environmental friendly.
➨   Pay attention to the veneer. The plywood has different veneer, such as birch, poplar and basswood. Birch plywood has darker color. Poplar plywood is very rough surface, when you touch it, you can feel the surface is not smooth. Usually its cost is much cheaper than basswood plywood. Basswood veneer is much smooth than poplar plywood and its cost is higher relatively.
➨   Also need to notice they are crafts level or construction level. We need to specify our usage purpose.
➨   We also should consider the fillings inside. Good quality the fillings are real wood, like poplar. The filling side is solid and you cannot see the gap or missing part. But cheap wood the filling is scraps, not solid. They are not good materials to make crafts.

➨   Pay attention to uniform color, consistent texture, and wood color and paint color.

➨   Plywood has the difference between the front and the back. When selecting, the plywood should have a clear wood grain, a smooth and smooth front surface, and no roughness.

➨   Plywood should not be damaged, bruised, bruised, thrifty, etc.

How Does Laser Machine Works

➨   Engraving with a laser machine, like printing on paper using a computer and printer, can be designed in a computer environment using a variety of graphics processing software, such as CorelDraw, scanned graphics, vectorized graphics and more CAD files can be easily "printed" into the laser machine. The difference is: printing applies the powder to the paper, while laser engraving shoots the laser onto the wood, acrylic, etc.

➨   Nowadays, laser machines are widely used in crafts industry. Due to its very thin laser beam, laser can make very intricate products. Every single line and pattern can be made precisely. 

➨   Except laser cutting machine, there are laser engraving machine and marker machine. These machines can engrave every delicate patterns on wood, glass, bamboo surface. Now this technology has been greatly used in wooden crafts.

The Advantage of Laser Cut

➨   The precision is high: the positioning accuracy is 0.05mm, and the repeating positioning accuracy is 0.02mm.

➨   The slit is narrow: the laser beam is focused into a small spot, so that the focus reaches a high power density, the material is heated to a degree of vaporization, and evaporation forms a hole. As the beam moves relatively linearly with the material, the holes are continuously formed into slits of narrow width. The width of the slit is generally 0.10-0.20 ram.

➨   The cutting surface is smooth: the cutting surface is free of burrs, and the surface roughness of the cutting surface is generally controlled within Ral 2.5; A.

➨   The speed is fast: the cutting speed can reach lOm/min, and the maximum positioning speed can reach 70m/m/n, which is much faster than the wire cutting speed.

➨   The cutting quality is good: no contact cutting, the cutting edge is little affected by heat, and there is basically no thermal deformation of the workpiece, completely avoiding the collapse formed when the material is punched and sheared, and the slit generally does not require secondary processing.

➨   The work-piece is not damaged: the laser cutting head does not contact the surface of the material to ensure that the work-piece is not scratched.

➨   It is not affected by the hardness of the material to be cut: the laser can process steel plates, stainless steel, aluminum alloy plates, hard alloys, etc., and no deformation can be performed regardless of the hardness.

What is PVC and What It Can Do

➨   PVC material is polyvinyl chloride, which is one of the largest plastic products in the world. It is cheap and widely used.

➨   PVC is completely non-toxic and tasteless. It does not cause any irritation to human skin or respiratory system. For those who are allergic to wood and paint, furniture or kitchen utensils packed with PVC film are very suitable. By using a PVC film as a decorative film, one can largely avoid the use of medium-density boards, particle boards, plywood and fiber boards, reducing the amount of wood used, thereby reducing damage to forests and the environment.

➨   This kind of materials are widely used in crafts industry. White PVC are commonly used to make wedding letters, colored PVC are used to made half-finished crafts elements. Some are made as wall decor. 

Do You Know (Medium Density Fiber) MDF

Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) is a kind of density fiberboard. It is made of wood fiber or other vegetable fiber. It is made of fiber, and synthetic resin is applied and pressed under heat and pressure. It has lots of advantages.

➨   MDF is easy to finish. All kinds of paints can be evenly coated on the MDF, which is the preferred substrate for paint effects.

➨   The MDF is also a beautiful decorative plate.
A variety of veneer, printing paper, PVC, adhesive film, melamine impregnated paper and light metal sheet and other materials can be decorated on the surface of the MDF.

➨   The hard MDF board is punched and drilled, and can also be made into sound absorbing panels, which are used in the decoration engineering of buildings.

➨   ​​​​​​​Physical properties are excellent, the material is uniform, there is no dehydration problem.

➨   ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​It is a perfect material to make crafts and furniture products. Such as wedding decoration letters, home use shelves, home decorations.
Solistar Crafts has made attempts to make this material into beautiful products. They are waiting for your discovery.

The advantage of Bamboo

➨   Bamboo has no chemical pollution, pure environmentally friendly material, strong heat  absorption capacity, and maintains the natural green color of bamboo. It maintains the unique texture of bamboo. Bamboo is made of special glue, environmentally friendly and green.

➨   Bamboo has its own unique natural texture, the texture is clearly visible, always give a     simple and elegant look, bamboo section is patchwork, beautiful appearance.

➨   Bamboo can absorb sweat in summer, and it can give warmth in cold winter days.
➨   Natural bamboo is a renewable resource and short time for production, and people who
advocate environmental protection are regarded as a new choice for fashion home.

➨   Bamboo is a great material to make cards, coasters, place mats, and decorative ornaments. 

Acrylic: An Amazing Material for Cake Topper

 Acrylic is an important thermoplastic. It has the reputation of "Plastic Queen". The sun and rain will not appear yellowing and hydrolysis. It can be used outdoors. Good toughness, not easy to break and repair strong, as long as the soft foam is used to remove the toothpaste, not only beautiful in style, durable, but also environmentally friendly.
