Coating Systems Explains the Advantages of Plastisol Coating

Plastisol coating works by combining PVC in a plasticizer to make it into a thick, pliable liquid. We heat the item to be dipped in plastisol ahead of curing. Once the piece cures, the coating is both sturdy and somewhat flexible. Coating Systems explains the advantages of plastisol coating for your products.   Dampens Vibrations Plastisol bonds to various types of metals. It dampens vibrations, such as those you might find in manufacturing equipment or steering mechanisms. Fewer vibrations enhance worker safety and well-being, reduce noise pollution, and help you maintain better control of your industrial machinery. Coating Systems can dip your steering wheels, turning mechanisms, and…

Advantages of Powder Coating for Busbars

Busbars are vital yet overlooked components of an electrical system. These items, typically made of copper, brass, or aluminum, allow wires and electrical connections to congregate along a single axis for convenience. Busbars are generally uninsulated, meaning if anyone touches a busbar they run the risk of electric shock or even electrocution. Coating Systems explains the advantages of powder coating as insulation for busbars in today’s blog. Maintains Conductivity of Electrical Components Powder coating doesn’t interfere with the conductivity of electrical components, much like any other insulating material. Powders are even better than rubber or plastic because they are form-fitting and don’t take up a lot of…

Uses of PTFE: Adhesives and Chemical Mixing

PTFE is a fluoropolymer commonly used as a nonstick coating for cookware in a consumer setting. For industrial applications, PTFE offers high operating temperatures and an extremely low coefficient of friction. It also has good abrasion and chemical resistance. Coating Systems explains how PTFE helps your facility when you have on-site adhesive or chemical mixing. Adhesive Tanks Adhesives can be very messy and tricky to deal with. You have to keep them at the right temperature, or they might harden. You can’t dip your items in them for too long or too short a time. Otherwise, the adhesion is too great or not enough. When you’re done…

Items That Require Vinyl Dip Coating from Coating Systems

Vinyl dip coating, also known as plastisol, starts as a thick, dense liquid made of PVC and plasticizer. Then, we heat the part that needs coating before dipping it in the vinyl material. As the part cools, the coating fuses to the part while remaining pliable on the outside. Coating Systems explains the types of items that require vinyl dip coating to operate at their peak. Tool Handles Handheld tools, such as wrenches, screwdrivers, and pliers, need to be both rugged and easy to grip. Vinyl dip coating adheres to the steel or aluminum of the handles. Meanwhile, the outer edge of the vinyl coating allows human…
