Plastisol PVC Dip Coating at Texas Dip Molding & Coating Inc.

6/13/2016

Not all products are well suited to PVD molds, so the technique of plastisol PVC dip coating by submerging a product in a liquified plastic solution is a great way to get around that problem. Dipping a product in a plastisol PVC solution will create a smooth, even coat that protects and adds a finished look to any item. Dip coating is used in dozen of applications, and it makes a great coating for electrical switchgear, medical instruments, fitness equipment and more. Plastisol PVC Dip Coating can even be used on laboratory glassware to apply a protective clearcoat on top of the glass.

In order to apply the dip coating in such a way that it adheres tightly with the surface, a product must be heated up to 350 degree Fahrenheit. Some products cannot withstand this temperature, so dip coating is not an option. The reason such extreme heat is needed is that it helps to create a bond between the plastisol PVC material and the surface of the object. This means that the coating will remain durable and secure over time. After the product is heated and dipped, it is given time to cool so that the PVC solution can set. When the process is over, the product is covered in a protective element that will remain effective for years to come.
