Tests are carried out on all our PVC plastisol to ensure we are making the plastic to the best of quality. We test tear strength, electrical insulation properties, chemical resistance and toxicity. The tear strength test is carried out at 23°C. Mouldings made from plastisol soften and become more elastic with increasing temperature. We would not recommend the use of mouldings produced from general grades of plastisol at continuous temperatures above 65° C. Specialised grades are available and they can be used at continuous temperatures up to 90° C, with intermittent use at higher temperatures.
We manufacture our own PVC plastisols and have developed a large range to suit widely differing requirements. Developments of new grades continue and, if necessary we can enhance a particular property of a standard grade.
Most grades are available in black, white and a wide range of colours. Some colours are offered as standard whilst other can be matched as required. Although many grades have a high gloss, opaque finish, some can be Matte, textured, or alternatively translucent.
