3D license plates consist of a base plate and separately manufactured letters connected to the plate with tenons.
3D signs are made of extraordinarily impact-resistant and elastic-plastic propylene, which is why they do not deform when vehicles collide. In addition, the letters and numbers are not painted but wholly colored.
There are 3D license plates in standard black, a high-gloss look, and a carbon look. The latter variant, however, is not recognized by all approval bodies.
What Are 3D Signs?
Plastic license plates have been attracting the attention of many vehicle owners. The stylish 3D license plates made of plastic are trendy because of their appearance and because the material offers some advantages compared to conventional aluminum license plates.
But what lies at all behind the three-dimensional novelty? And what components is a 3D license plate made up of? In principle, it consists of two main parts: plastic base plate and 3D letters hard plastic. In the first step, it is ensured that the scale reflects following the legal standard. For this purpose, a unique film must be poured onto the base plate. The letters or numbers are manufactured separately in the second manufacturing step, using more rigid plastic than the circuit board.
Both components are put together in the decisive last part of the production. The three-dimensional letters are provided with tenons that pierce the softer plastic of the base plate. This creates a stable connection from both parts, from which the 3D license plate results.
What Are The Advantages Of 3D License Plates?
3D license plates are less damaged in an accident because the plastic polypropylene is elastic and impact-resistant.
The metal signs used up to now and are still predominantly found often show some signs of wear and tear after a short period of use. Bumps after accidents, paint which over time replaces or conditional also by the cold and wet season rust – these are the main disadvantages of traditional license plates.
In comparison, 3D license plates can score with various advantages, which we have compiled for you in the following list:
- The letters and numbers used are wholly colored and not just varnished, which eliminates the problem of varnish peeling.
- The plastic polypropylene used for production is impact-resistant and elastic simultaneously, i.e., after each deformation, the 3D license plate returns to its original shape.
- Overall, because of the plastic used, license plates in 3D design are more durable and, at the same time, more environmentally friendly than their predecessors made of sheet metal.
- Fans of the variety of designs should be most pleased with the triple version because 3D vehicle number plate (ศาสตร์ เลข ทะเบียน รถ which is the term in Thai) are now available in the following variants: standard black, high-gloss (also known as black magic), and carbon look.
