What is Vinyl Dip Coating, and What Items May Benefit from It?

An open dishwasher with the bottom rack pulled out.

Tool handles, automotive parts, picnic benches, and deep-fryer baskets made from metal have a sturdy structure. That structure is necessary for all of these tools to manage the demands of jobs across industries. However, the environments in which we use these parts can wear down the metal, leading to a structural decomposition over time. Even the acids on the human hand can erode metal tools, and any metal object exposed to the elements will almost certainly develop rust.

That’s why product designers and OEMs turn to vinyl dip coating to protect metal objects. Precision Coating Technology and Manufacturing (PCTM) uses plastisol powder for our vinyl dip coatings, providing a strong, even finish that can be customized to a unique color. This type of powder coating provides a soft yet durable outer layer that protects against corrosion, oxidation, and abrasion.
