Key materials used :

  • Polyester powders
  • Nylon for dipping
  • LDPE for dipping
  • PVC for dipping

Choice of material is crucial to balance the functional and aesthetic requirements for an application.

Some of the important variables include:

  • Impact strength
  • Chemical resistance
  • Temperature resistance
  • Friction
  • Scratch resistance
  • UV resistance

In the case of powder coating the material choice is generally Polyester based. There are also special formulations available that contain Epoxies which are designed for harsh environments. Supplier partners such as Dulux and Interpon are constantly developing new and innovative formulations to cater for the most demanding requirements.

Our Polydip business uses Nyon, LDPE and PVC which all have specific functions as outlined in more detail in the ensuing sections.
