As highlighted by Mark Stewart in his LinkedIn article “Plastisol – a polymer solution for almost any situation,” Plastisol stands out as a versatile polymer solution. Initially, a viscous liquid blend of chemicals, it transforms into a resilient protective coating upon curing. Typically composed of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), plasticising compounds, and performance additives, Plastisol offers customizable attributes, ranging from hardness to color.
Catering to various project needs, Plastisol boasts exceptional corrosion resistance and durability, making it a preferred choice for coatings. Its chemically inert nature post-curing ensures resistance to chemical reactions, ideal for environments prone to contamination. Furthermore, its non-conductive property enhances resistance to electrical damage, while its robust construction withstands impacts effectively.
Plastisol’s versatility extends to its resistance against organic contaminants, such as mold and mildew, and its imperviousness to moisture. When applied comprehensively, it forms an almost impenetrable shield, safeguarding objects across diverse environments.
The decision to use Plastisol for coatings stems from its unmatched durability and protective capabilities, particularly for materials like steel and metal.
Why Choose Plastisol?
Plastisol presents numerous advantages, including:
- Corrosion and chemical resistance
- Enhanced durability with no chipping or tearing
- Wear resistance and sound-deadening properties
- Anti-vibration and safety features
- Environmental protection
- Specialized antiviral coatings available, such as PolyBlend.
