Ask Us A Question

Wright has more than 35 years of 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 PVC powder 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”.

What Is Plastisol Coating?

Plastisol (PVC dip) coatings are thermoplastic polymer coatings under the category of 'protective coatings' in paints and coating nomenclature. Even though Plastisol is a PVC - type coating, it has a soft, almost rubberized texture. PVC Plastisol powder coating is used to protect a wide variety of metal substrates, such as steel and aluminum, in applications ranging from corrosion, high-impact impact, and abrasion. 

Plastisol Coating Advantages

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 Coated Assorted PartsPlastisol (PVC)

PVC (Dip/Fluid Bed) – 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 a 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). PVC powder 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.
