Plastisol Coated Part

Plastisol coating is applied to products for a number of reasons, such as increasing the aesthetic appeal, providing a better tactile experience and allowing for easier handling. If you’ve ever used tools with a soft, pliable grip – pliers, wrenches and more – then you have firsthand knowledge of the advantages of plastisol. There are a number of ways to apply plastisol coatings, and today, we’re going to look at the way Wright Coating is able to apply plastisol.

By far the most common method for applying a plastisol coating, our dip process is ideal for parts that require full coverage, or require a dip-to-line, clean finish. Using our computer controlled machine, we are able to precisely dip the parts into a bed of plastisol and control the speed of the parts leaving the plastisol, revealing virtually no drip lines. The advantage of using our computer controlled machine is that the process is repeatable, leaving your parts with the same, ideal coating over and over again. This can be used for parts that require the plastisol coating on only a certain area of the part, where you want a clean cut line. With our computer controlled machine, we can create a program for your parts, and hold a tight tolerance for a repeatable finish. The dip process is also great for parts that require full coverage, and a thick coating, because our computer controlled machine is able to accurately keep your parts in the plastisol for the exact amount of time for your required thickness, and with virtually no drip lines.
