Dip Coating Industry Information

Dip Coating

Dip coating is the process of using a molten coating material to provide a decorative or protective plastic covering to a wide variety of objects. Used by several industries, including consumer, automotive, and electronics, dip coating involves dipping an object into a viscous material which will cling to the object and harden, leaving a film of plastic on the surface.

Process of Dip Coating

Dip coating uses plastics that harden and maintain their shape when heat-treated. The process of plastic coating is not limited by object size or dimension, as the container holding the coating can be designed to accommodate larger or smaller products for full coverage.

Here are the three basic steps of the dip coating process:

  1. The object is immersion into the coating material, such as plastisol or PVC.
  2. It stays in the coating for a specific period of time. This time frame determines the thickness of the coating layer and can help to prevent irregularities.
  3. The object is removed from the material at a constant speed to ensure further even coverage.

Depending on the coating material used, the object may be heat treated after dipping in order to fully bond the coating to the object and provide the desired surface finish. Objects that are widely used every day, such as tool handles, plastic caps, hand grips, wire hangers, fences, and medical equipment are manufactured using a dip coating process.

Benefits of Using Dip Coating

Reasons for using dip coating are usually both decorative and protective. Coating materials can be produced in different colors and finished with different textures, allowing manufacturers to adjust the final look of the coating according to the desired appearance. This is especially important in the consumer industry, as appearance is an important aspect of success. However, the more important reason for polymer coatings is using it as a protective barrier around an object and effects from the environment around it, improving the lifespan of a number of items.

Dip coating can cover an entire object and make it corrosion-resistant, as it prevents the air from contact with the object. This is necessary for objects that will come into contact with moisture, especially metals, as they corrode and weaken over time. Objects such as wire fences, electrical connectors, and medical equipment all use dip coating for this reason. Other types of plastic molding or coating can be expensive, but because dip coating produces hardly any waste and objects rarely require further finishing, there are noticeable savings in using this method.
