History of Silicone Wristbands

The first silicone wristbands appeared in 2004 in the USA and Western Europe. They were primarily used in fundraising and charity efforts. What truly boosted and led to the popularity of silicone wristbands was the "Livestrong" yellow silicone wristband, which originated due to cyclist Lance Armstrong. Armstrong was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 1996 but successfully overcame the disease and returned to cycling. He then established the Armstrong Foundation in 1997 to support cancer research, later renamed Livestrong. Armstrong Foundation and main sponsor Nike joined forces to design the now-famous yellow Livestrong silicone wristband. Six million wristbands were initially produced and sold very quickly. The surplus proceeds went to the Armstrong Foundation to support cancer research. Several years later, it was revealed that Lance Armstrong had used banned substances while participating in cycling races and was stripped of his titles. At the time when the Armstrong scandal broke out, silicone wristbands were not as strongly associated with Armstrong, and they did not lose their popularity due to the scandal.

Uses of Silicone Wristbands

Silicone wristbands are still used for charity by foundations and organizations. By wearing silicone wristbands on the wrist, a clear message about what you support or stand for is expected. These wristbands are also widely used for advertising. Companies and other organizations use them as giveaways. Special shapes of silicone wristbands, such as a braided design, are also used for decoration and fashion.

Production and Materials

Our silicone wristbands are made from 100% latex-free rubber and are tested safe against allergic reactions. The material is soft, elastic, and very comfortable to wear. Silicone in its raw form is transparent. Dyes can be added to the raw silicone to achieve various base colors for the wristbands. Other popular additives to raw silicone include glitter flakes in different sizes and "Glow-In-The-Dark." Marbling and segmented color effects are achieved by mixing one or more colors during the production process.

Debossed (recessed) areas on the wristbands can be filled with soft enamel colors, which are also elastic, allowing the wristbands to stretch without causing the filled colors to crack. Embossed (raised) areas of the wristbands can be color-printed using a special film.

Embossed Silicone Wristbands

The most popular in this category are embossed silicone wristbands. Colored silicone is used for production. A mold is created according to the artwork (texts and logos) performed, and it is heated in a silicone blend, poured into the mold. In the next phase, the silicone cools inside the mold, and when it's hard enough, it is released from the mold.

The logo/text is typically recessed halfway into the thickness dimension of the wristbands or raised above the surface of the wristbands when embossed.

Printed Silicone Wristbands

Printed silicone wristbands are divided into two groups: screen-printed (serigraphy) and offset-printed, both used for printing on blank silicone wristbands. Screen printing is the most cost-effective way to customize blank silicone wristbands with a logo or text. Typically, one or two colors can be printed on the wristbands. When more than two ink colors are required, offset printing is used, allowing full-color images to be printed on the wristbands.

Sizes and Shapes

While it is possible to produce adjustable silicone wristbands (like watch straps), this option is not as popular. When it comes to silicone wristbands, fixed sizes are in higher demand. Standard basic molds are used in production, accommodating several standard sizes for extra-large, adult, youth, children, and babies.

Silicone wristbands can be manufactured in almost any shape; it's just a matter of cost. Special shapes of silicone wristbands require a special basic mold. Braided, zigzag, dotted, and watch-shaped designs are possible, to name just a few.

Additional Options

When variable data is required on the wristbands, such as personal names, numbering, groups, etc., laser engraving is used. The process starts with engraving blank wristbands. The depth of engraving is controlled by the intensity of the laser beam. Laser engraving is controlled by a computer program that can process information from Excel (or simply from a list).

RFID applications for silicone wristbands are becoming increasingly popular. An RFID chip is integrated into the wristbands, making it easy to transport and scan RFID chips by placing the wrist close to a scanner. The silicone layer provides good protection for the RFID chip.

Silicone wristbands can easily be turned into keyrings using a metal clamp and a split ring. A stainless steel split ring is attached to the wristband. A stainless steel clamp is pressed onto the wristbands to hold the split ring in place. These silicone key hangers are popular in swimming pools and other places where keys need to be carried on the wrist.
