FAQs

What is PB-Protect Plastisol?
Plastisol is described as, “a suspension of PVC or other polymer particles in a liquid plasticiser.” This equates to standard PVC or Acrylic Plastisol. However, PolyBlend have developed a certified protected surface technology that can convert the standard range or any new formula in Antiviral (Covid-19) or Antimicrobial product.

Can you make my current plastisol Antiviral?
PB-protect Plastisol range technology can be used to convert our standard PVC or Acrylic formula’s to protected products.

By adding very specific levels of additives, we can readily achieve the plastisol which will produce either an antimicrobial or antiviral end product.

Is PB-Protect safer than Standard plastisol?
What this product range offers is protection of products with high-touch point used in high traffic or clean environments. It also makes the product more sustainable and offers durable protection throughout its product lifecycle.
