Folding raw materials
Traditional building hardware mainly uses metals as raw materials, such as ordinary carbon steel cold-rolled steel strips, cold-drawn low-carbon steel wires, various specifications of copper, aluminum, light metal alloys, and malleable cast iron. Surface treatment materials include copper, nickel, chromium, silver and so on. In recent years, small hardware made of various non-metallic materials, such as ceramics, glass, rubber, and plastics, have been developed. Especially all kinds of plastic hardware made of polyamide, polypropylene and other engineering plastics, such as bathroom hardware and plumbing hardware. These plastic products not only have high quality, beautiful appearance, color and luster, good decorative effect, but also have high production efficiency and low cost, can save a lot of non-ferrous metals, and have been widely used.
Generally, products with sheet metal as the main raw material adopt the stamping process. Some use the casting process, and then the blank is processed by cutting. The manufactured products are generally assembled after surface treatment. Small hardware products using plastics as raw materials are formed by extrusion, injection, blow molding and finishing or surface treatment.
The performance of small building hardware must ensure that the external dimensions are accurate, the parts are precisely matched, and the appearance and surface must be bright and uniform. In addition, various products are provided with control indicators according to their use functions. Architectural hardware is an important part of the internal structure and various facilities of industrial and civil buildings. It must not only have the function of use, but also increasingly require decorative effects and reflect a certain level of art to adapt to the development of the modern construction industry.
