The strength of hard-metal-plated plastic type units
- 34 Downloads
The damage of type units depends mostly on the crack of metal film, and the crack occurs on the plastic side of metal film under the load position and propagates to outer side. The position of initiation of the crack corresponds to that of the maximum tensile stress caused in metal film.
Among some factors, thickness of plated metal, profile of the tip of type units and modular ratio of plated metal to plastics are main factors to control the stress pattern.
