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.
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 handles in plastisol for better worker productivity.
Plastisol protects metals from corrosion and wear when they are under constant use. This substance serves as a layer to protect against impacts and abrasion. For example, you have a handheld tool that workers use daily. People may accidentally drop it, or it may fall on the floor. Plastisol protects the metal from nicks, dings, and scratches that could, over time, weaken the structural integrity of the tool. Coating Systems enhances the longevity of hammers, wrenches, and screwdrivers with plastisol on your vital tools.
Creates Many Colors
You have a color-coded system of tools and equipment. Wrenches of a specific size have red handles, while larger ones are blue and the most robust wrenches have yellow. Your team buys a new set of wrenches, but the color of the handles is different. That’s where new plastisol coating comes into play. Coating Systems can enhance your workplace by color matching and color coding your items for ease of use. New coatings also replace old ones to make your tools look and feel like new.
