This mold clamping line may be removed by some factories in subsequent processing, but their weight will be lighter than resin buttons (of course some special plastic material will be heavy). The resin buttons are mechanically engraved and then polished, so the surface does not have a full mold line and is very smooth. But it is fragile, the surface is easy to scratch, and it will become soft when placed in boiling water.
