What is plastisol?
Very tough stuff
Plastisol is a PVC paint covering that dries to a smooth, durable coating. Our plastisol-coated steel sheet is made from hot-dipped galvanised steel substrate with an outer layer of plastisol that’s embossed with a leather-grain finish. This a brilliant all-rounder, suitable for use both inside and out. You get all the strength and longevity of galvanised steel with coating that’s incredibly versatile, stylish and tough. Originally developed for use in cladding and roofing, plastisol-coated metal is fast becoming one of engineering’s most sought-after materials. We supply ours in Goosewing Grey, one of the most popular shades of plastisol, but we can provide other colours on request, so do get in touch if you’ve got a different shade in mind. It’s 0.70mm thick, but again, we can offer different gauges if you let us know, plus we can cut your plastisol-coated galvanised steel to exactly the size you need. If you need your sheet metal to look good, resist colour fading and be amazingly resistant to corrosion, this is the one.
Good for: Construction, cladding, roofing, partitions, heating and ventilation, garage doors, garden planters, panels, interior and exterior design.
How it’s made: First, steel sheet is bathed in a hot bath of zinc, which toughens it against moisture and the elements. This process is galvanising and it’s what gives us galvanised steel. Next, the 200-micron PVC paint, Plastisol, is applied to the metals’ surface in its liquid form. To finish, the Plastisol outer layer is embossed with a leather-grain pattern. The outer plastic coating combined with the galvanisation produces a material that is equipped to resist the elements and any resulting corrosion.
- Superior corrosion resistance
- Excellent formability
- High resistance to abrasion
- Wide range of colours and gauges
What our customers say about us:
“Searched high and low for a Metal Sheet that was magnetic and didn’t cost a small fortune. ‘Buy Metal Online’ came to the rescue. Never bought something like this before, so my biggest worry was if it was genuine. Delivered by Tracked Royal Mail. Arrived well packed. I will definitely be using them again.” – Bal, Trustpilot, December 2016.
The largest steel sculpture in the world towers above its visitors in Incheon, South Korea. Measuring an enormous 23.57 m (77 ft 3.95 in), the geometric-style creation features the fortune bear, symbol of the country’s Dan-Gun mythology. It was unveiled in 2014 and is yet to be surpassed.
