The toys suitable for babies of different ages are also different. Toys are generally divided by material, but also by age. So do you know what the material of children’s toys is? It doesn’t matter if you don’t know, let’s take you to know the materials of children’s toys today! We know that the main material of plastic toys is plastic, but what materials are these plastics? Not sure, but know that the prices and uses of toys of different materials are different.
1. ABS material
ABS plastic is one of the five major synthetic resins. Its impact resistance, heat resistance, low temperature resistance, chemical resistance and excellent electrical properties. ABS plastic also has the characteristics of easy processing, stable product size and good surface gloss. And ABS plastic is easy to paint and color. Therefore, secondary processing such as surface metallization, electroplating, welding, hot pressing and bonding can also be performed. ABS plastics are widely used in industrial fields such as machinery, automobiles, electronic appliances and construction. ABS plastic is an extremely versatile engineering thermoplastic. The raw material price of ABS will also be higher than other raw materials. Most of the toys for babies under 3 years old are made of ABS.
2. PP material
Polypropylene, or PP for short, is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic. It has high impact resistance, strong and tough mechanical properties, and is resistant to various organic solvents and acid and alkali corrosion. It has a wide range of applications in the industry and is one of the common polymer materials. Many food-grade packaging uses PP materials. Therefore, most of baby’s toys are made of PP material.
3. PS material
PS plastics, that is, polystyrene plastics, refer to a class of plastics that include styrene groups in the macromolecular chain. Polystyrene has good fluidity and good processability. Moreover, it is easy to color and has good dimensional stability, so it is especially suitable for injection molding.
4. HIPS material
HIPS plastic is actually a benzene material, which is our common transparent plastic. It is mostly used for plastics in toys, such as car windows, transparent car shells, etc. Most of these materials are also environmentally friendly original packaging materials.
5. PVC material
Most of the PVC material is used for doll making. PVC material is a bit soft and has good elasticity, and is generally used for dolls. So whether it is Barbie, dolls, or bathing ducks, the material is PVC. Because the risk of excessive phthalic acid content in PVC is somewhat large, there is a distinction between environmental protection and ordinary. But at present, the materials of these vinyl dolls are getting better and better. If mothers are worried, these things are not recommended to be boiled frequently.
6. TPR material
Heat-shrinkable elastomer plastic, but not silicone. The most commonly used are the wheel skin of the wheel, the soft bullet of the needle gun and so on. The advantage of TPR is temperature resistance.
