The Definitive Guide to Dip Coating

The list of everyday appliances that are dip coated are endless. Medical equipment, electrical appliances, even military-grade items are all dip coated. However, if you’re planning on getting some of your equipment dip coated, there are some things to know before you do:

Dip coating is very similar to dip molding

Dip molding is a plastic manufacturing process just like dip coating. It involves dipping a mandrel into liquid polymer to create a new plastic product. Dip coating is very similar to this. However, instead of creating a new plastic product, dip coating involves placing a finished product into liquid polymer to cover some or all of it in plastisol. Besides for this one difference, though, both processes are essentially the same.

It provides an aesthetically pleasing finish

Dip coating can come in a variety of colors, gloss levels, and textures, allowing you to completely control the look of your finished product. This variety also ensure an aesthetically pleasing finish on an otherwise dull and boring metal part.

It enhances gripping power

When you’re working with pliers, screwdrivers, and other tools, you want to make sure that your grip is tight and secure. It can be hard to do this on sheer metal, but by coating the ends in plastisol, you’re given a soft, anti-slip surface to hold onto. This makes whatever project you’re working on must easier to handle.
