Let's Talk

As a society, we are constantly making new discoveries about the effects that various materials have on the environment. At PolyBlend, we want our customers to feel empowered to make environmentally-conscious decisions, despite the vast amounts of ever changing information in the media.

Are PVC or Acrylic  plastisol coatings eco-friendly?

Plastisols are solutions of PVC or Acrylic polymers dispersed with plasticisers, which are modified with other materials and additives to achieve a range of flexible PVC or Acrylic products. Plastisol is one of the most widely used coatings – and for good reason! Not only does it boast impressive properties, it’s also an environmentally friendly option.

Here’s why….

☀️ It’s highly durable and chemical/weather resistant – this means the plastisol coatings last longer, have a longer decomposition rate, and protect the material beneath.

🌳 Plastisol has a very low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) – meaning less particles are released into the air. This makes it one of the most environmentally friendly coating materials.

❌ Plastisol is non-toxic – this means it isn’t harmful for people or the planet.

🦠 Plastisol can be made Antiviral or Antimicrobial. PolyBlend has developed an industry leading plastisol solution that provides antiviral and antimicrobial protection for surface coatings. We can develop the technology to your existing product range or formulate a custom solution to your specific requirements.

To prevent downstream waste, PolyBlend offers its customers end-to-end solutions for defined management throughout the new product development process.
