Let's Talk

How are plastics so versatile?

Most modern plastics are based on organic chemicals that offer manufacturers a huge range of physical properties that is still growing. There was a time when anything made of plastic was considered to be of inferior quality, but those days are well past.

There are many types of coating procedures that work well with plastisols, most all of which involve heating (curing) the coating or moulded polymer solution along with combing a cooling period.

These different plastisol coating procedures yield a variety of results and differences in the thickness, texture and geometry of the coating. Some coatings are directly applied to a substrate while others are made in moulds.

The versatility of plastic materials comes from the ability to mould, coat, laminate or shape them and to tailor them both physically and chemically. There is a plastic suitable for almost any application.

Polyblend formulates PVC plastisols for a wide range of specialist markets and applications:

πŸ”· – Flooring
πŸ”· – Coil Coating
πŸ”· – Fabric Coating / Scrim Coating
πŸ”· – Dip Moulding
πŸ”· – Rotational Moulding
πŸ”· – Caps & Closures
πŸ”· – Jig Coating
πŸ”· – Glove & Sock Dotting
πŸ”· – Automotive Filters

Plastic coatings are are designed with versatility in mind, they are hygenic, lightweight, flexible and highly durable in having to withstand varying and extreme environments. PVC coatings have a lot of properties that other materials can’t offer and so they have been widely used in all industries to offers solutions in how the products are used across numerous applications such as;

πŸ“ Safety flooring,
πŸ“ Dip moulded products,
πŸ“ Coated textiles,
πŸ“ Coated fabrics,
πŸ“ Artificial leather
πŸ“ Carpet backing.

Any of these solutions can also include an antimicrobial additive to provide surface protection to the above products.

Our coatings love variety – Why?

Because PolyBlend formulates a broad range of PVC and Acrylic Plastisols that produce a flexible, tough, versatile, and highly stable product that can be formulated to provide a wide variety of physical properties and attributes. Developed through a technological process, our innovative solutions are aligned with your manufacturing processes.

PVC Coatings have a tough job – Why?

Because they offer a wide array of benefits and speciality requirements to their specified environment with its end user in mind. A few examples below πŸ‘‡

βœ… Safety flooring requires High performance, durability, lightweight, with a robust traffic defence.

βœ… Coated fabrics like tarpaulins have to stand up to punishing elements such as – heat, cold, dirt and bacteria.

βœ… Dip moulded products need to withstand an array of environments and protection properties; Impact, chemical & UV.

βœ… Artificial leather has to have a wide range of colour shades available to meet market needs.

βœ… Carpet backing needs strength to hold the fibre structure in place and flexibility for fit and movement of tread.

How do you do that?

You’ll need high quality plastisol’s that are designed to meet those requirements and enhance the performance, appearance, and sustainability of customer’s products.

In summary, not only do we work in collaboration to understand in depth what our customers want, but we work within a partnership with you to work through the process with compliance to the market in which they serve to design a formulation which meets the customers requirements.

AtΒ POLYBLEND UK LIMITEDΒ our polymer solutions are developed to meet the stringent regulatory requirements without compromising on safety, customers processing requirements to deliver a superior product for your end user environment.
