What’s the difference between hot and cold paper cups? In daily life, paper cups are frequently used. For paper cups, we also have the difference between hot and cold drinks. Let’s take a look.
First, hot and cold paper cup information
1. We can divide paper cups into “cold drink cups” and “hot drink cups”. People will think that paper cups are nothing more than filled with cold water and hot water. There is no other difference.
2. In fact, for these two kinds of paper cups, their uses and processing forms are different, and the quality requirements for the paper cup materials are also different.
3. In addition to meeting the requirements of packaging and processing performance, the customized materials for paper cups should also have printing suitability, and the printing of paper cups should also meet the conditions of heat sealing in the processing and molding of paper cups.
Second, the difference between hot paper cups and cold paper cups
1. Hot cup
It is usually used in the packaging trade of hot drinking products. The processing material is PE single-sided composite paper, namely single-sided coated paper, which is generally printed on the non PE side and directly printed on the paper.
Due to the need for hot drinks, this type of paper cup needs to have a certain thermal insulation after processing. Therefore, generally, this type of product requires a certain thickness and stiffness of paper to increase the thermal insulation of the paper cup for publishing and printing. The larger the volume, the thicker the paper used.
Printing on the paper cup is a publicity method adopted by many manufacturers. At the same time, the exquisite printing pattern also gives the paper cup a gorgeous coat and brings good visual enjoyment to consumers.
The single coated PE paper is printed on the paper surface, so except that the selected ink must meet the food hygiene requirements, other aspects of the paper have similar effects on the printing with ordinary paper.
2. Cold drink cup
Cold drink cups can be divided into two types according to different processing methods. One is that the paper has good impermeability through wax dipping process after the cup is printed on the base paper, and the other is that the paper has impermeability after the paper is compounded with PE on both sides.
The printing requirements for the materials of two different processing forms of paper cups are different. For paper cups processed by wax dipping, printing is cut on the paper surface, and there is no special requirement for raw materials for printing itself.
For double-sided PE composite paper, to obtain a good printing effect, the composite paper needs special treatment.
