Why you should use resin buttons in clothing?

Good wear resistance

The resin material has high strength and strong scratch resistance. Therefore, it can withstand the continuous friction of the washing machine without breaking. Even resin buttons used in sand-washed garments can withstand the test.

Resistant to ordinary high temperature

In general, resin buttons can withstand hot water at 100°C for about one hour. So, when the garment is ironed, it is not necessary to remove it. This is also an advantage that other ordinary plastic buttons do not have.

Good chemical resistance

Resin buttons can withstand 30% of various inorganic acids and ordinary dual-culture water corrosion. But you can not put it in ketones, esters, and alkaline water for a long time soaking.  For more types of buttons, please refer to the article 16 different types of buttons for clothes.

Flat pearl buttons

Flat pearl buttons have the same pearl brightness on the entire button surface. They are like mirrors with bright colors. Thus, the appearance is difficult to distinguish from pearl plexiglass buttons. Natural pearl buttons are often ideal for shirt buttons.

Glass pearl buttons

The pearlescent arrangement on the surface of the glass pearl button is corrugated. Then, its brightness is high. Besides, the bright spot shines like a cat’s eye.

Imitation shell buttons 

The pearlescent arrangement on the surface of this button is irregular and it shows colorful effects. They are close to the pearlescent effect of natural shells. So we call them imitation shell buttons.

Striped buttons

The surface of striped buttons has fine and smooth lines and natural color. It has the texture of natural bamboo and wood. So we also call them imitation wood buttons and imitation bamboo buttons. And they are perfect for some casual clothes.
