Vinyl plastisol is a dispersion of polyvinylchloride (PVC) resin in a liquid plasticiser. Other ingredients include pigments, stabilisers for heat and UV light, flame retardants and additives that influence the surface (matt/gloss).
Plastisol dip coating qualities
An extensive range of plastisol dip coating qualities is available for a wide range of applications, and LoVen helped with the development of many unique formulations. The hardness, determined by the level of plasticiser, is measured using the Shore A scale from a flexible 40 Shore A to a dimensionally stable 95 Shore A.
Other dip molding materials:
- UV proof
- FDA approved
- Transparent (crystal clear)
- High and low temperature
- Flame retardant UL94 V0
- Oil resistant
- Chemical resistant
Plastisol dip coating properties
The excellent electrical insulation properties of PVC dip coating are well known and frequently employed in the electrical engineering industry. Moreover, most basic qualities have effective fire retardant and specially adapted properties in accordance with UL94 / V0.
Colour and finish
LoVen offers a complete range of standard colours. In addition, we can also match an exact colour if you require this. The standard finish for dip moulded products is a high gloss, but we can also supply semi-matt, matt, structure (foam) and fluorescent materials.
Managing PVC dip coating waste
LoVen considers it extremely important that our employees work with the highest quality materials. So naturally, the use of clean materials in our production process, which are not hazardous for men or the environment, has our continuous attention (consider here our standard phthalate-free materials for several colours).
All of our PVC dip coating waste is collected and shipped to a specialised recycling company. Therefore, it is not possible to reuse processed plastisol. However, you can recycle solid waste without a problem and use it for the production of floor mats and. For instance, flowerpots are a great example.
