As a fashionable and casual accessory, custom wristbands frequently appear on various occasions in our life, especially in some large-scale activities. People often wear various custom wristbands to identify people or express some themes. Our common silicone wristbands are usually single color, such as red, yellow, blue, green, yellow, purple, and so on. Actually, we can also integrate different colors on one wristband to achieve a different visual effect. For such multicolored wristbands, we called them Segmented wristbands or Swirled wristbands. So how can you tell the difference between these two polychromatic wristbands? Let’s find out today.


Segmented Wristbands

To arrange two or three or more colors on one wristband, each color has a well-proportioned color distribution, one by one, doesn’t mix together. We called this kind of multicolor silicone wristbands as segmented wristbands.


Swirled Wristbands

To mix two or three or more colors together, not be arranged one by one, the color distribution is in a swirling state, mixing with no regularity. This kind of color wristband was called as swirled color wristbands.

Production Process

No matter Segmented wristbands or Swirled wristbands, they have the same production process, that’s the over-molding process. But sometimes, there also are a few differences in some details between them. Let’s see.

. The Same Point

We know the production process of silicone wristbands are basically the same, after putting the raw materials into the mold, the silicone wristbands will be formed in the mold under the liquefaction of high temperature. Mold temperature is generally maintained at about 200 degrees (depending on the original material characteristics), so as to ensure that the material is well-formed and not damaged. Therefore, almost all silicone wristbands have the characteristics of high-temperature resistance. One set of molds can produce a variety of silicone wristbands, as long as the design is the same, color selection will not affect the mold production.

. The Different Point

The difference between the two lies in the ingredients.

The segmented wristband is an independent color scheme for raw material, and then the prepared raw materials of different colors are put into the mold one by one, waiting for heating and shaping, so that the colors of the products are arranged in a regular manner, appeared segmented status.


The Swirled wristband is prepared by adding needed toner to the raw material for color matching in accordance with the proportion required, then mixed the toner into raw material well. After the toner is completely integrated into the raw material, then put the well-prepared material into the mold for molding which makes the color of the product irregular and swirling.


Uses For The Two

Segmented and swirled colors are two interesting design methods, both the color of segmented and swirled can create a unique appearance, sometimes gorgeous as rainbow, also spectacular as colorful sunrise. For school, sports meetings, exhibitions, a dynamic band, and other large-scale events can choose these two unique colorful wristbands to create a different visual feeling.
