Custom Resin Epola Pins are without any doubt one of the most outstanding lapel pin styles in the market today.This pin style has been around for decades and still grows from glory to glory. Different people call it Misty, others Resin Cloisonne, and some Hard Enamel. In spite of its name variation, Epola emerges as of the best and reasonably priced alternatives to Cloisonne. Unlike Cloisonne which uses a few colors, Epola is versatile as it can incorporate up to a thousand Pantone colors choices for each pin. Resin Epola also captures fine details, is colorful and offers a much smoother surface than soft enamel.
Custom Resin Epola Pins – Manufacturing Process:
The Epola manufacturing has close semblance to that of Cloisonne. Typical designs use brilliant colored resin in depressed areas. Designers cut die to match the image of a design and then they emboss the image on a copper sheet. Pins are also crafted to match the design shape via a mold. The Epola resin is the kiln-fired at temperatures between 800-900 degrees.
Once the Epola is baked, the hardened enamel is sanded and polished to remove metal lines that separate colors. The resulting product is a glossy and tough enamel finish which reveals fine beautiful details. Also, epoxy is used in this process. Depending on your design or needs, silk screen printing can also be used to enhance the effects of your design in the manufacturing process.
Epola is an outstanding option since it allows designers to produce small metal detail that cannot be produced in other styles. Besides that, Epola style pins are known for their durable construction. Unlike Cloisonne pins which fracture easily, epola endures because of its glass like strength. So, if you want more fine detail, exciting colors, and unmatched quality, then the Epola is a great choice for you. Some of the common metal plating options that are used during the manufacture of Resin Epola lapel include:
- Zinc Alloy
- Stainless Steel
Standard metal plating options with thickness of 1.2mm-2.0mm are also used. The common plating materials include:
- Copper misty plating
Besides the above materials, antique gold, silver, bronze and copper are also used as well as matte gold, silver, and nickel.
