The plastic material used in the manufacture of the VALUE SERIES SATINS was specifically selected and formulated to achieve the best balance of properties needed for the engraving industry.
The material softens sufficiently at about 200°F, which enables bending, should that be desired. It can also be drilled, sawed, sheared, nailed and bonded to itself or other materials.
Most of the colors will exhibit slight fading under prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. There are, however, those which tend to fade more severely. This material is designed for use where no direct extreme exposure is encountered.
The base and cap material were tested for flammability by Underwriters Laboratories. They are rated at 94HB on the UL 94 test.
