Friends who like soft shells will think why there is a hard shell? Of course, friends who like hard shells will have the same questions. So, should the tablet case be chosen to use a soft shell or a hard shell? This article will introduce the characteristics of soft and hard shells for your reference.
Of course, the soft shell and hard shell starting point are to protect the tablet case, which is the most basic function of the tablet case.
Friends who like soft shells have always questioned that hard materials can’t protect the tablet better. In fact, when the tablet fell to the ground, the hard-shell tablet case also shared a part of the impact. Of course, in the end, it may become broken, resulting in no way to continue to use the tablet case, which is equivalent to sacrificing the tablet case to protect the tablet. I have used a tablet case with a thickness of about 0.5-0.6MM. I accidentally dropped the tablet to the ground from about 1 meter high. The tablet has no problem on the impact surface, but the tablet case is broken. This proves that protection is still there. Of course, some friends said that the top and the tail of the hard shell are not protected, and this situation no longer exists. The four faces of the latest hard shell are now completely enclosed.
Here summarize the advantages of the hard shell:
1. The hard shell of transparent material does not become yellow when it is used normally.
2. Hard material can achieve very thin thickness. If the soft shell thickness of soft material is about 0.5mm, the soft shell of tablet protector in this structure is easy to stretch and deform, and because the material is too Thin is also particularly easy to turn yellow.
3. The hard material is easier to process in the process, making the hard material color shell more bright or feel better. Because the process has a process of oven drying, the soft shell is easily deformed in this process. In order to cope with long-term high temperature deformation, the factory will consider lowering the temperature or shortening the drying time, resulting in the soft shell processing not achieving the desired effect.
4. The hard material can remain unchanged for a long time. The soft shell of the soft material tends to become greasy, and some of the coating that remains handy will peel off easily.
As for the soft shell, it also occupies a part of the market consumption. This advantage and shortcoming can also be shared with you. In fact, the soft material is also classified. The early rise is silicone. Now it is tpu. The silicone concept is the earliest soft material protection shell. We are the easiest. Seeing the original silicone protective cover that comes with ipone, why does silica have a good feel? In fact, it is not originally there. It is a secondary coating process after forming a silicone sleeve. It is a skin-like coating on the surface. It has always given people the illusion that the feel of the silicone sleeve is better, and this kind of skin coating The layer is also widely used on hard material shells.
However, with good silicone materials, why is there a product market for tpu? In fact, according to the order quantity of raw material purchase, tpu far exceeds the protective shell of silicone material, because tpu has transparent characteristics, no deformation, and good processing fluidity (this is especially when injection molding, tpu can It turns into a liquid at high temperature and is molded by injection molding onto a metal mold. The silicone is not transparent. It can only be said to be almost transparent. Because the real silicone product is processed, if it is not coated with a skin-like coating, the tablet case It will become very sticky and easy to attract dust.
And tpu can pass the high-speed injection molding machine to achieve a transparent shell of about 0.7-0.8mm thickness. If the factory quality control is good, it is very beautiful. However, the actual protective cover can give your tablet a scratch-resistant feature, which is slightly weaker in terms of resistance to impact.
Then someone asked tpu so good, what are the disadvantages? The shortcomings are easy to yellow, of course, there is a way to solve this yellowing. The method is to buy an opaque and colored protective cover to avoid this problem.
Soft shell and hard shell have their own advantages. Now the process of making tablet cases is more and more mature. Some small problems can be avoided. You can purchase according to your actual needs. I hope this article is helpful to you.
