Polyblend Enters the Wall Coverings
Our newest venture at Polyblend UK Ltd is the development and manufacturing of PVC plastisol’s for the Wall Coverings market. Wall coverings are an important decorating tool in both residential and commercial settings. They can be used on nearly every type of surface, enhancing interiors with a wide array of patterns and colours. Using plastisol, you can create decorative wallpaper with a wide variety of patterns, including those that mimic the surfaces of wood, stone, leather, and other natural materials.
Vinyl wallpaper has grown in popularity for both residential and commercial interiors and is today a design tool of choice for interior designers, architects, and other specifiers. The reasons for plastisol’s growth in popularity for this type of application are both aesthetic and practical – plastisol offers a wide range of finishes and colours with enhanced durability for a variety of applications.

What is more, we have recently introduced our new PB-protect range which incorporates antimicrobial protection into your custom formulated plastisol products.
What does this mean for the safety of your interiors?
Our antimicrobial range protects your wall surface from bacteria and microbes, reducing their presence by 99%. When bacteria comes into contact with an antimicrobial protected surface, the silver ions prevent them from growing, producing energy, or replicating, therefore they die. This form of protection is effective for the lifetime of the surface.
Most importantly, incorporating antimicrobial protection inhibits the growth of mould or fungus which can often be an issue in older buildings and homes. Mould can cause severe damage to homes and building interiors, as well as being a long-term threat to our health – Biomaster, the world leading antimicrobial additive can be readily incorporated into any plastisol Wall Covering to prevent the growth of this substance.

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.
