Carlisle Plastics Launches Plastisol-Centered Public Awareness Campaign

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NEW CARLISLE, Ohio — Carlisle Plastics Company Inc. launched a new public awareness campaign focusing on the versatility, cost-effectiveness, and general utility of plastisol-based products and services. Found everywhere from the aerospace, automotive, medical, robotics and other large industries to small businesses with minimal quanitity projects, plastisol is a flexible, heat-responsive mixture of polyvinyl chloride and a plasticizer. As one of the world’s leading producers of plastisol-based products and provider of plastisol dipping services, Carlisle Plastics will, through the company’s just-launched campaign, help spread awareness about the manifold uses and appealing traits of the material.

“Plastics of many different kinds play very important roles in the modern world,” said Carlisle Plastics President Cynthia Clay Thomas, “but some of them receive perhaps less attention than they deserve. This is particularly true of plastisol, a nearly ubiquitous substance that fills mission-critical roles in a huge range of applications and industries. We think our new public awareness campaign is really going to open some eyes regarding the importance of plastisol and the many uses to which it can be implemented.”

Polyvinyl chloride, better known by the abbreviation “PVC,” has a range of attractive properties on its own. The chlorine molecules within the polymer make it inherently flame retardant and less likely to react to other substances than many similar materials, contributing to the usefulness of PVC for the production of plumbing, storage vessels, and many other important goods.

PVC on its own can be brittle, but that weakness can be overcome by suspending particles of the polymer in an appropriately selected plasticizer. Known generally as “plastisol,” the resulting material is not only much more flexible and resilient than simple PVC, but can also easily be liquefied and molded.

Since the company’s founding in 1958, Carlisle Plastics has been one of the world’s leading producers of plastisol based products and associated services detailed at A woman-owned, ISO 9001-certified company, Carlisle Plastics makes all of its products in the United States. With no minimum orders or limits on the sizes of production runs, the company provides fast, industry-leading turnaround times for standard, custom, and prototype sample orders.

The production and sales team are able to assist with almost any custom project. They will work to meet your requirements for even the most difficult part. In addition to manufacturing a wide range of stock and custom caps, they also provide custom dip coating services. Carlisle Plastics is proud and excited to offer several secondary operations such as; special packaging, die-cut or rough cut trimming, as well as hole punching, hot-stamping, pad printing and other services. You can contact their sales team for additional  options as they are willing to explore every opportunity to help provide the customer with what they need.

With the impressive versatility and usefulness of plastisol being less well-recognized than it might be, the Carlisle Plastics’ new campaign will help spread awareness across a range of industries.
