Eye chip installation and troubleshooting
The following is an introduction to the new eye chips
which is not necessarily applicable to chips of other brands.
Basic information before use:
The new eye chips are
made from acrylic, whose properties are different from those of polycarbonate
plastic (PC) as provided by the original manufacturer and other materials such
as PP, PS, etc. For example, acrylic has a slightly lower density but a higher
brightness than other materials.
In addition, pores on the chips will open completely (to absorb pigments) during
a second medium / high temperature (75-90 ºC) color setting treatment and
acquire a lower contraction toughness when quickly chilled, wherein the time for
the color setting treatment varies with pigment properties.
Therefore, there is a risk that ice cracks may form on the chip surface or the
chip color may turn pale if the chips are in contact with a corrosive solvent.
If it is necessary to wipe the chips with a solvent, tests must be done
beforehand. Thank you.
To make the eyes livelier, the new chips not only use a different material and
pattern, but are also enhanced in height. The highly convex design increases the
light-condensing property of the chips, gives the eyes a more animated
expression, provides a greater variety of chips, and makes the chips have more
While designing the new
chips, it was found that, in some cases, the four cavities in an eye socket from
the original manufacturer had such problems as having different depths and an
uneven horizontal plane. More frequently, the two lateral cavities were
shallower than the front one (allowing for positive and negative errors). Since
it is more difficult to install a chip into the lateral cavities than into the
front cavity, the following description must be read carefully to effectively
prevent the chips from getting stuck.
The laser paper is not placed flat enough.
Do not install a chip slantingly, or the
chip may be easily stuck because of the slanting angle. And when a chip is
accidentally stuck, do not pull it out forcibly, or else the chip may be stuck
even further or other internal parts may be broken as you pull.
Check the chipís edges for
residual material. (A chip may not be properly or evenly installed because of a
raised spot formed by residual material.)
Remove residual adhesive from the
If a cavity is too shallow, remove
the sticker on the back of the laser paper.
To change chip colors, switch sides, or change the chipsí locations or styles
In order to improve brightness and
transparency, the new eye chips are made from a high-temperature acrylic. So
never wipe the chips with a corrosive or nitro solvent, or else the chip color
may turn pale, the chip surface may become frosted or ice cracks may form on the
chip surface. If a corrosive or nitro solvent must be used, testing before use
