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.
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 gases and particles are released into the air. This makes it one of the most environmentally friendly coating materials.
🔗 Polyblend’s recent collaboration with Biomaster enables us to incorporate world-leading antimicrobial technology into any of our custom formulated plastisol products as part of our new PB-protect range. This silver ion technology provides long-lasting and effective product protection against harmful bacteria, biofilm, fungi and mould for the lifetime of the end product without affecting its structural and physical qualities.
Going green is more than just a trendy topic; today, more than 90% of CEOs believe that sustainability is fundamental for success. Antiviral plastisol is a far more sustainable option than regular plastisol – as it has increased durability and, in turn, reusability, helping to discourage single-use plastics and minimise our throwaway culture. Not only that, it requires far less cleaning and maintenance, helping to minimise the toxic chemicals which harm our planet.
At PolyBlend, we take pride in offering our customers high quality plastisols, custom formulated to suit the end product. With over 35 years of expertise in this industry, we offer end-to-end support throughout the entire process, ensuring we meet the specific requirements of the customer. Please do reach out if you would like to discuss making your products antiviral with our specialty range of PVC plastisols.

Dip Moulding is a simple and frequently employed process used worldwide. It works by creating a ‘to-scale’ mould of the product before it is heated and dipped in a liquid PVC or Acrylic, known as plastisol. With this type of process, the speed of entry and dip time determines the shape and thickness of the final product.
