Decorative & Functional Coating Applications

Plastisol

Wright has more than 30 years experience in coating with plastisol. Plastisol is a PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) material. As the plastisol coating is heated, it gels and fuses into a homogenous bond. When the coating cools, it is highly regarded for its physical properties and chemical resistance. We have the ability to handle small parts up to 16” x 32” x 12”.

Projects can be scaled to meet small, custom requirements as well as high volume production.  

  • Plastisol Coating is preferred for vibration damping, soft feel & look
  • Plastisol Coating protects metal against impact and abrasion
  • Plastisol Dipping finishes range from high gloss to matte to subtle textures
  • Substrates include aluminum, steel and High Heat Engineered Plastics
  • A wide variety of colors available
  • Custom-formulated coatings are available to meet harshness, flexibility and tensile strength

Application Methods

Plastisol CoatingPlastisol (PVC)

PVC (Dip/Fluid Bed) – PVC Plastisol powder coating is used to protect a wide variety of metal substrates, such as steel and aluminum, in applications ranging from corrosion, impact and abrasion.

PVC Dip coatings are thermoplastic polymer coatings under the category of 'protective coatings' in paints and coating nomenclature. The Dip Plastisol coating process is generally used when a part requires a thicker coating and/or a “dip to line” where only specific areas of the part require coating of 10-250 mils (thousandths of an inch). This is applied through a dip process where the part is preheated and dipped into a liquid tank of PVC and then post cured.  

PVC Fluid Bed process is powder generally used when a part requires a thinner coating. It is applied through a dip process where the part is preheated and dipped into a dry powder that is fluidized with air then post cured at a thickness of 5 – 30 mils (thousandths of an inch). Coating application temperatures are usually between 180 to 250 °C (360 to 480 °F). PVC Fluid Bed based coatings are recommended for use in both interior and exterior applications.
