Chemicals for the tool industry – tool finishing with PROTEFAN® dip plastisols

PROTEFAN® surfaces not only improve the feel of tools, but also stand out with their aesthetics and functionality. The plastisols for coating tool handles are thermally curing and are applied through hot-dipping. This is an efficient process, as the coating can be applied in just one step, regardless of the layer thickness. 

Haptics, aesthetics and functionality under control: PROTEFAN® dip coatings

PROTEFAN® dip coatings form a non-porous surface and offer durable protection. Their main application is in the coating of tools – such as pincer grips or screwdrivers. With the resilient PVC-based plastisols, customers can rely on several advantages at once:


  • Production in common RAL colours, glossy or matt with rough or smooth surface
  • The coatings are abrasion-resistant and insulate up to 1,000 volts
  • High resistance to acids, alkalis, salt solutions as well as degreasing and cleaning agents


PROTEFAN® dipping pastes for electroplating applications

ROTEFAN® products demonstrate their strengths not only on tool handles, but also in production processes for tools. Whether you need them for plastic electroplating, chemical galvanising or hard chrome plating, the resistant PVC-based plastisols are ideally suited for protecting electroplating racks in galvanising plants. Their excellent stability against mechanical loads and high elasticity ensure that the suspension springs on electroplating racks can be bent permanently.
