Plastisols are dispersions of extremely fine particles of high molecular weight polyvinyl chloride resin and additives in liquid plasticizers. With hundreds of raw materials possible, plastisols can be tailored to a wide range of products and processes. Properly formulated plastisols can save time, labor and money by being custom tailored for use in a variety of processes. Since heat alone fuses the liquid to a solid, less expensive tooling can be used to make parts. Also, compounds can be formulated over a wide range of hardness, temperature, flexibility, heat, tear and abrasion resistance characteristics in virtually any color.
