Today, we shall briefly touch on a few points to shed some light on the justification of our charges for chemically-etched products.
1. Labour Intensive
The entire process of chemical etching involves about 10 sets, from preparing of the film to filling in the enamel paint, and 8 of these steps has to be done manually.
2. Proper Waste Treatment
The acid used for chemicals etching have to be changed on a regular basis. As this acid is harmful to the environment, it has to be professionally disposed of by specialised companies. This process results in additional costs.
There isn’t much difference in terms of time taken for 10 steps of processes for 1 pc and 100pcs of the same product, which is why our quotations differ greatly based on quantity.
At Brighten, we take pride in the fact that our chemically-etched products differ from the rest in one key aspect: thinner-resistant. All our etched products undergo a special process resulting in the filled enamel paints being incredibly resistant to volatile solvents like thinner or turpentine.
