Since 1995 we are certified by ISO 9002.

Low temperature performance
Test pieces cut from a dip moulding produced under normal conditions were tested generally in accordance with BS 2782:1/104A (cold bend test). Samples from 100 BS softness mouldings passed the test at -50°C whilst those from 45 BS softness mouldings passed at -20°C.

Flame retardancy
Additives can be incorporated in all our plastisols, except food grades, to improve their resistance to flame. The specialised grades listed above include PDM 100 FR spec. UL.94-VO which has been tested positive by the American Underwriters Laboratories Inc. who have issued the coveted QMFZ2 yellow-card approval certification to Plastic Mouldings and we believe we are the only dip moulding company in Europe to achieve this.

Fatigue strength
Gaiters and bellows are often produced by dip moulding and in order to investigate the fatigue strength of such items a typical moulding was fitted to a rig in which it performed more than one million reversals without visible signs of fatigue. The amplitude of the reversals was 100mm and the frequency 115 per minute.

Most of our plastisols are classed as non toxic. It is not possible to list the complete range of materials that can be manufactured, please consult us for further information.
