GS Plastics' people are problem solvers. We can recommend one of our existing formulations or custom formulate to meet your requirements.
Plastisol Dispersion Compounds
Plastisol dispersion compounds are made by mixing a PVC paste resin with liquid plasticizer and other additives, including stabilizers, pigments and fillers. Proper viscosity or flow characteristics are essential for good processing. Plastisols contain no solvents and do not emit VOC's. They can be formulated into soft, semi-rigid or rigid compounds.
Plastisols are processed by roller, knife and sheet coatings to make gasketing, noise abatement panels and wall coverings. Casting, rotational and slush moldings are used to mold hollow objects, such as boots for gearshifts and shoes, toys, and medical appliance parts. Dip coatings are used for electroplating racks, wire goods, electrical wiring, fishing lines, tool handles, automotive parts, and stamped metal parts.
PVC solution coatings - modified vinyl resins that contain solvents, plasticizers, stabilizers, and pigments - are used to coat swimming pools, tanks and even fabrics. The primers satisfy the toughest adhesion requirements. If your manufacturing environment or product needs corrosion resistance, you can choose from GS Plastics' variety of specially formulated, air-dry PVC coatings.
